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 Academic Mentoring, Quantitative Reasoning, the Writing Project, Writing and Rhetoric, and 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.
