Mission Statement

The Professional Studies and Fine Arts (PSFA) Academic Resource Center (PARC) is a collaborative community in which PSFA and ROTC students achieve their learning goals. In the PARC, students develop the cognitive and metacognitive strategies, confidence, and self-knowledge to persist, graduate, and become masterful learners.


The Professional Studies and Fine Arts Academic Resource Center (PARC) strives to be an affirming community for the culturally and educationally diverse students in the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts and ROTC where they can maximize their learning; dream big; connect with peers, caring staff, and campus resources; and engage in meaningful self-reflection as they work to achieve their learning goals.

Core Values

We Value
  • Belonging: Every PSFA student experiences community at SDSU. 
  • Student agency: Students are the experts about themselves, not us; we are collaborators.
  • Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (JEDI): We see and affirm students’ lived experiences, which shape our work.
  • Responsibility: We hold ourselves to the highest standard as educators, utilizing research-based or data-informed learning theory and pedagogies in all interactions with students.
  • Respect: We honor and maintain student confidentiality. We respect our students’ investment in their education.
  • Collaboration: We work in collaboration with other academic support programs on campus, learning assistance programs at other schools, and professional organizations in the field of learning assistance, including member organizations in the Council for Learning Assistance and Developmental Education Associations (CLADEA).
  • Adaptability: We prize creativity, innovation, and problem-solving, keeping in clear focus our commitment to the students we serve.
