History of the Alice Rowe Learning Assistance Center
Dr. Alice Rowe served as a faculty member at Western Kentucky University from 1976
through 1999. Many of Dr. Rowe's dreams have come to fruition with the successful
establishment of the Learning Assistance Center.
On April 22, 2004, the Center was renamed the Alice Rowe Learning Assistance Center in her honor.
