Supportive Services Program (SSP)

Supporting all UMD students to be excellent learners

UMD's Supportive Services Program Cited for Best Tutoring Program in the Nation!

ATP Award

UMD's Supportive Services Program, a partner in the Learning Commons, was recognized as the outstanding program of the year at the national conference of the Association for the Tutoring Profession (ATP) on March 23, 2014. This award is given annually to "recognize the tutorial program that exemplifies excellence in training, scope of purpose and range of tutorial support to students within the academic setting." In what was described by the ATP awards committee chair as the "most competitive field in the history of the awards," the University of Minnesota Duluth was chosen as the top program in the country.

"I love the Tutoring Center. Without it, I would be lost." These simple words, uttered by a math tutee, are heard almost daily. UMD's Tutoring Program delivers approximately 15,000 tutorials annually through 10,000 hours of free service to UMD students.
