The mission of the Chemistry Learning Center is to provide a welcoming, safe, and respectful learning community, facilitate small learning groups, assist students with chemistry content, and improve students’ learning skills so they can become successful independent learners. The CLC has a long history of approaching students holistically, engaging them on a variety of levels, and developing a strong rapport.
The Center works with students enrolled in the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE), Center for Educational Opportunities (CeO), PEOPLE, Posse, and First Wave programs. Our program also tries to support first-generation low-income students, underrepresented students of color, students at-risk of failing the course or on academic probation, students re-taking the course after failing it, McBurney Center students, students returning to school after a long absence, Mercile J. Lee Scholars, recently returning military veterans leaving full-time active duty, and first-semester transfer students. These are guidelines and each student is considered on a case-by-case basis taking into account available program space.
