Welcome to the Communications Center!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Valencia College campuses are currently physically closed to students, staff and faculty through Friday July 31, 2020. However, the college remains open to assist students virtually. Scroll to the "Online Tutoring" section at the bottom of this page for more information.
The East campus Communications Center is a student-centered learning support environment and is dedicated to helping Valencia students develop the necessary skills to achieve academic excellence. In order to guide students to success, we are committed to the following goals:
- Help students become better writers
- Be a source for learning rather than a “fix it” center
- Help students become independent learners
- Build rapport with faculty
We are professionals in all that we do, adhering to established guidelines so that we may satisfy the goals of the College, the expectations of our faculty, and the best learning interests of our students.
