Since its opening in the spring of 1972, the General College Reading/Writing Skills Center has provided students with tutorial help in reading and writing, and communication skills courses for credit. During its three years of operation, the Skills Center has extended its services through satellite centers to student populations other than those served in the base center. During the period covered by this report, the satellite centers included Pilot City Skills Center in North Minneapolis, St. Paul Community Programs Skills Center in the Summit-University area of St. Paul, the Minneapolis Workhouse Skills Center in Wayzata, Stillwater Prison Skills Center in Bayport, and the Extension Classes Skills Center on campus. This report reviews the services offered by the daytime General College Skills Center and by each of the satellite centers. Tables indicate the number of students served and the number of faculty employed by each center. Descriptions of funding sources and proposals, as well as anecdotal materials about the program are appended. (Author/DC)
