Center for Academic Excellence (CAE)
The CAE is made up of the Learning Center, the Library, Faculty Development, Instructional Design, and the Testing Center – all of which support the mission of the CAE, which is “to support a college community of engaged learners and promote a culture of excellence in teaching and learning that reflects best practices.”

Learning Center
The Learning Center, located in the Science building at 22 N. Pauline, provides students with academic support to ensure academic success. The Learning Center offers peer tutoring, workshops, models, a computer lab, microscopes, and other learning resources to assist students. Additionally, the Learning Center uses a self-assessment for new students, the College Student Inventory, to implement referral and intervention programs to leverage resources for success.
