Business Resource Center
The mission of the Business Resource Center (BRC) is to serve students enrolled in credit classes at Lane Community College by providing supportive learning environments, instilling confidence, encouraging independence as learners, and providing individual peer tutorial assistance and academic support.
The BRC honors diversity. We all work together to create a safe environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. All people are welcome here!
We offer Dragon Naturally Speaking for those with reading disabilities. Dragon allows the student to read her/his document into the mic and the spoken word magically appears on the screen in a document to be saved by the student on his/her jump drive. There are two computers available, each in a private room.
Our tutors are business majors and have expertise in many of the classes offered through the Business Department.
