Instead, the CLC provides training in pedagogical techniques, collaborative learning techniques, and classroom assessment techniques to help peer educators (Tutors, Undergraduate Learning Assistants, Academic Coaches, etc.) incorporate “how to learn” with “what to learn.” The CLC can also provide professional development opportunities for peer educators throughout the semester.

The Engagement Centers are unique spaces located in each neighborhood and serve as the main access points to important resources such as tutors, academic advisors, health practitioners, and other consultants that can help you navigate through your college career.  Resources provided in the neighborhoods are organized into four key developmental areas:  academic, health and wellness, intercultural, and residential.
