Academic Resources

The Center for Learning and Teaching, located in Kanbar Hall, houses programs that support learning and teaching throughout the curriculum. They offer a variety of strategies to help students become active, engaged, and independent learners.

The Baldwin Program for Academic Development helps students assess their learning styles and develop time management, organization, reading and other learning strategies.

Through the Quantitative Skills Program, students in quantitative courses of all kinds are supported by peer tutors in study groups, workshops, and individual tutorials.

The Writing Project offers students a chance to get feedback on their writing and to talk through their ideas with a peer writing assistant while working on a paper for any course.

The English as a Second Language (ESL) Coordinator works with multi-lingual students on analyzing assignments, reading, outlining, writing and revising, editing, and understanding the conventions of American scholarly writing.
