About Us

The Instructional Resource Center (IRC) strives to serve the learning community of Pittsburg State University by making resources available for students, faculty, and staff. Although the primary IRC audience is members of the College of Education, our resources are available to any PSU student, past or present.

The IRC is located in the basement of Hughes Hall in room B25. The IRC is open by appointment. To schedule an appointment to visit the IRC, call 620-235-6160.
