The Chemistry Learning Center (CLC) provides small-group, collaborative, learning environments for students enrolled in general and organic chemistry courses.
Our facilitators establish a safe space so students are comfortable asking questions, and provide immediate feedback as students solve problems. Students actively work on problems and support one another in an encouraging small-group atmosphere. The staff facilitates and highlights effective learning strategies and demonstrates general problem-solving approaches.
SPECIAL COMMENTS: Our program is partially funded to work with students in programs such as CeO, PEOPLE, Posse, and CAE. We also try to welcome Chancellor and PK Scholars, McBurney Center students, students on probation, new transfer students, students away from college more than 4 years, and students at-risk of failing the course. These are general guidelines and we consider each student on a case-by-case basis.
SPECIFIC COURSES: CHEM 103, 104, 108 all sections. CHEM 343, 345 usually one lecture session/course.
TYPE OF SUPPORT: Workshops/reviews, small group, small group size: 6-10
STUDENTS SERVED: Undergraduate students
