TILT supports students’ academic success and pursuit of long-term goals through several curricular and co-curricular learning programs. Tutoring, study groups, and Learning Assistants help students succeed in challenging courses. Serving as a TILT tutor, study group leader, or learning assistant allows students to take up academic leadership roles, learn course material very deeply, and gain experience relevant to prospective employers, graduate programs, and internships. Academic success workshops, such as time management, exam preparation, and learning strategies, help students improve study skills and learn about topics of interest. Through TILT, students can participate in service-learning opportunities or in undergraduate research and artistry projects with faculty mentoring. National research has shown that taking part in these opportunities improves learning, increases academic achievement, and promotes connections with faculty and other mentors who often help students achieve professional and personal goals.

Chemisty Learning Resource Center (CLeRC)

The CLeRC has many resources available to undergraduate students that aims to improve student learning and academic performances for all students in our chemistry courses.  We support both classroom and lab instruction and strive to engage students as active participants in their learning process.  Opportunities are available for students through free, individualized tutoring from faculty and graduate teaching assistants, open study, and meeting space for self-organized study sessions.  Faculty and teaching assistants are available throughout the week to support most CHEM courses with 30-80 hours of individualized support every week for students enrolled in the large general and organic chemistry lecture courses.  An adjoining computer lab is open for use by all students whenever the CLeRC is open.  All resources and individualized support are offered on a drop-in basis during fall, spring and summer semesters.
