On October 5, 2019, the National Collegiate Learning Center Association (NCLCA) awarded the University of Southern California’s Kortschak Center for Learning and Creativity (USC KCLC) with the 2019 President’s Outstanding Learning Center Award for Specialized Populations in recognition of the outstanding support that is being provided to USC students with learning differences.

The NCLCA created this award to give national recognition to the work accomplished by learning centers that provide services to a specialized population and to foster their growth and development. The NCLCA and the Council of Learning Assistance and Developmental Education “are excited about the work and original research performed by the Kortschak Center as it is integral to the success of students with learning differences, thereby ensuring improvements to learning, retention rates and graduation rates.” Geoff Bailey, the Vice President of NCLCA also said, “NCLCA is looking forward to additional contributions to our field from the Kortschak Center in the years ahead.”  The USC KCLC Director, Julie Loppacher, was present to receive the award on behalf of USC and the incredible professional and graduate student staff that are responsible for the work of the Center.
