Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) celebrated the grand opening of its new Digital Learning and Academic Support Center (DLASC). The new center, located on the first floor of the BRCC Magnolia Theatre and Performing Arts Building on the Mid City Campus, is the premier individual and group workspace at BRCC.

To officially mark the grand opening of the Center, BRCC’s Chancellor Dr. Willie E. Smith participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony with College administrators, followed by a tour of the Center for students, faculty and guests.

“The creation of the Digital Learning and Academic Support Center, exemplifies BRCC’s commitment to being the leader in providing cutting edge resources and solutions for student success,” said BRCC Chancellor Dr. Willie E. Smith. “At the heart of this Center is the opportunity to connect our students with opportunities to be successful and to link them with the tools they need to achieve their goals. We want every student who uses this space to understand our deep commitment to their overall academic success.”

The DLASC offers a state-of-the-art study space where students, tutors, and faculty can collaborate, educate, and create–in person and online. The center features include a video production studio, small and large group study rooms, technologically advanced classrooms, noise-reduced study pods, and access to in-person and virtual tutoring accredited by the College Reading and Learning Association.

The inviting space is a place of belonging for BRCC’s students. Re-imagined through work associated with BRCC's Title III PBI formula grant awarded by the Department of Education, the Center supports BRCC's mission to be the preferred provider of talent for a global marketplace by increasing individual and institutional capacity for engagement in all learning modalities.
