Remote Learning Resources


Welcome to the Center for Teaching and Learning!

We offer many kinds of support and enrichment to students: the Teaching Fellows can support your work in courses in 12 departments; the Writing Fellows will help you with all stages of your writing assignments; and the Study Mentors can help you with time management and study skills. Finally, we invite all seniors to share their academic passions at the annual Senior Symposium.

For Faculty, we offer a wide array of enrichment and support opportunities, from Faculty Learning Communities to one-on-one consultations.

For more information about these and other programs, please follow the links on the left.
