Pennsylvania Act 101
In 1971 Governor Milton Shapp signed legislation which authorized the establishment of programs at Pennsylvania's colleges and universities to assist students whose records might indicate they need a little extra help at first to succeed in their studies.
Although each program is unique to the individual college, most Act 101 programs include a tutoring component, a counseling component, and various activities to help the students adjust to the demands of college life.
To find out more about the Act 101 program at La Salle you can contact the Director of La Salle's Act 101 program, Bob Miedel.
There are several colleges and universities in the Philadelphia area with Act 101 programs. If you would like additional information on the more than seventy-five Act 101 programs across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, you can call Harrisburg at 1-717-783-9188.
