The Collaborative Learning Center is housed in between Johnson and Scott Halls, located at 420 Thorne St.
The center provides a student peer mentoring program, study and computer facilities, opportunities for faculty development, consultation for grant development and outreach programming. Mentors at the center provide in-depth, one-on-one or group mentoring in a comfortable and casual environment. The mentors are generalists and can assist students at most levels and across all academic divisions.
Students frequent the CLC to get assistance with collegiate-level writing. Mentors are far more than proofreaders. They are trained in argumentation theory, evidence testing, composition and the highest standards of writing. They are well-versed in the the proper techniques for oral presentations in an academic environment and in various philosophies of problem-solving to promote and foster students’ abilities to think through and overcome academic obstacles.
The CLC is fully stocked with soda, water, hot chocolate, tea, coffee and snacks — and comfy chairs — to keep students comfortable and energized when a short visit to the center becomes an extended stay.
