Center for Learning & Teaching

"The process of metamorphosis is scary and sometimes painful,
but it is also the way to experience wonderful new adventures we weren’t even able to imagine in our “caterpillar” identities.
Accept the process: care for yourself, dream big, work hard, and keep learning.
Then don’t be surprised when one morning, you wake up to find that you have wings.

   -Martha Beck

Bowdoin College has a group of programs that support learning and teaching throughout the curriculum. These programs, housed in Kanbar Hall, work cooperatively to complement Bowdoin's curricular resources and enhance students' academic achievement (and experience). The Center for Learning and Teaching programs include the Baldwin Program for Academic Development, the Quantitative Reasoning Program, the Writing Project, Writing and Rhetoric, and professional tutoring in English for Multi-Lingual Students. In addition to serving as a location for tutoring, mentoring, advising, and study groups, the Center also offers a space for studying during its open hours.
