The Center for Learning Excellence is an interactive learning environment where students can go to work with faculty, professionals and peer tutors to get the most out of their academic collegiate experience. Located in the Henry Pfeiffer Library, the Center is a convenient place for quiet individual study or interactive tutoring and study groups to meet.
We take pride in providing optimal academic support for all students in an environment that is friendly, encouraging and motivating. We offer free tutoring to all students in all academic areas, and can also help with study tips, test anxiety, note-taking, presentations, speeches and computer skills. Our goal is not only to assist students in getting the best grade on a test or research paper that they can, but also to teach them how to become lifelong learners.

The CLE serves to empower all students to achieve academic and personal goals through a comprehensive college-wide support network of peer and professional tutoring, study group facilitation, workshops, and individual assistance aimed at helping students develop into lifelong learners.
