It Takes a College to Raise a Skill

A message to our students:

It Takes a College to Raise a Skill is a collaborative project developed through the LA Mission College Learning Resource Center to provide you with support in building the skills that college students find are essential for success. Not only are the faculty, staff, and administrators at Mission working together to support your success, but we are partnering with the Los Angeles Community College District and colleges throughout California to bring you the tools for success.

Your instructors are deeply invested in seeing you succeed in your courses here and in your career path. They may have asked you to complete the 8 Essential Lessons presented here and to explore one lesson and its supporting materials a week for the next eight weeks. Before accessing the Week 1 video, be sure to take this Pre-Survey and remember to complete the Post-Survey when you finish Lesson 8. We are making your success our priority. Take the challenge. Invest in your own success.
