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 the CAE (Center for Academic Excellence), CeO (Center for Educational Opportunity), PEOPLE, and Posse support programs. We also try to welcome students on academic probation, first generation low income students, underrepresented students, students returning after a long absence from college, students-at-risk of failing the course, students re-taking the course after earning a D or F, new transfer students, returning veterans, and McBurney Center students. We generally follow these guidelines when accepting students though we consider each student on a case-by-case basis and also take into account available space in our program.
