Catalog and Student Handbook 2020 - 2021

The Student Success Center (SSC)

The Student Success Center (SSC) is designed to enrich learning opportunities through resources available to students at a distance or on campus. Modeled on best practices for excellence in teaching and learning, the SSC provides students with opportunities to extend and to deepen their classroom learning experiences by participating in academic advising, tutoring through TutorMe - a virtual tutoring platform, basic skill strengthening, career counseling, and/or short-term personal counseling to help direct your next steps. Located on the 1st floor of the Academic Building in C127, the SSC strives to be a warm and welcoming community of learners dedicated to fostering student growth and success. Walk-in appointments are available daily during normal business hours; however, students are encouraged to make an appointment by calling 617-322-3579 or emailing StudentSuccess@laboure.edu in advance. 

Access and Accommodations

Labouré College is committed to extending reasonable and appropriate accommodations to students whose learning differences are consistent with standards described in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. To be eligible, students seeking accommodations will provide documentation from a licensed medical or behavioral health professional that describes a legally recognized learning difference and that indicates the accommodations necessary to assure equal access to the College's programs and services. This documentation should be submitted at the time of enrollment to ensure proper accommodations can be made. Access and Accommodations services are offered by the Student Success Center.

Student Retention Coordinator

Dedicated to ensuring students have equal opportunities for success, students are encouraged to review the weekly student success workshops available on-ground and virtually with the Student Retention Coordinator. Workshops include professional nursing reviews, testing strategies, study techniques, reading effectiveness, time management, and more. The schedule of workshops is published in the weekly student newsletter, in the SSC section of the Student tab on my.laboure.edu, and available in the Student Success Center. 

Academic Success Planning (My Academic Plan - MAP)

Labouré College is committed to ensuring that students have the best opportunity to achieve their academic and career goals. The Department of Admissions will inform students at the point of acceptance and/or placement testing if they are required to have an academic success plan, which we call a My Academic Plan - MAP. MAP is a virtual academic resource that coincides with a student's first semester of coursework. Each week, students will be provided resources and success strategies to try out. Additionally, students will meet with an Academic Advisor one-on-one three times to check in and see how the semester and academic support is helping them. For those who are required to participate in MAP, successful completion of the MAP program is required for registration for the next semester. Students who are not required to have a MAP may request a MAP if desired. Questions about MAP can be directed to StudentSuccess@laboure.edu

Student Government Association (SGA)

Beginning in 2018, the Student Government Association has worked to represent all academic programs as a student voice. Elections are held each Spring semester for the upcoming academic year. The SGA works with the Student Nursing Association (SNA) to provide support for student-sponsored events and to serve as a place where students can submit ideas related to promoting new resources at the College. Visit the Student Success Center on the "Campus Life" tab at my.laboure.edu for more information. 

National Student Nurses' Association (NSNA)

The National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA) is the pre-professional organization for nursing students enrolled in associate degree and bachelor’s degree programs. The NSNA mission is to organize, represent, and mentor students preparing for initial licensure as registered nurses, promote development of the skills necessary to be responsible and accountable members of the Nursing profession, and develop Nursing leaders who are prepared to move forward the profession in the future. The College’s chapter of the NSNA welcomes new members during each semester. Officers are elected annually. The College encourages online student involvement in student leadership, College clubs, and professional and co-curricular organizations.
