Diliman Learning Resource Center
Learning Resource Centers (LRCs) were established by the UP Board of Regents on April 17, 1997 to supplement, complement and coordinate all learning assistance programs and instructional support services to students in each campus and to ensure that the goal of promoting academic excellence will be realized in a more caring and nurturing environment. The Diliman Learning Resource Center (DLRC), simultaneous with LRCs of other autonomous UP units, was institutionalized on April 28, 1997. It is supervised by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and is headed by a Director.
When it opened in 1997, the DLRC was based at the National Engineering Center. In 1998, through the funding assistance of then Congressman Manuel “Mar” Roxas II, the former dining hall of Kamia Residence Hall was converted into the base of DLRC.
The DLRC offers free peer-assisted tutorials in Mathematics (Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus), Science (Chemistry, Physics and Biology) and Engineering Sciences as well as simulated examinations, i.e., intensive written exams designed, conducted, and discussed by competent peer tutors. It also provides students with internet-ready computers for their research, reviewers and self-learning modules in Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics, and a well-maintained area conducive to studying, project- making, or small group meetings.
