The Learning Commons is committed to helping all students be effective, confident and independent learners.
The Learning Commons is a collaborative space where students can work with each other and Peer Tutors to discuss course concepts, quantitative reasoning, writing and rhetoric.
The two rooms, located on the first floor of the Library Building just off the Atrium and on the 4th floor of the Academic Building, can be used as study areas 24/7. In addition, Peer Tutors are available in the Library Building room during evening drop-in hours, and the Academic Building room can be booked by Peer Tutors to work with small groups at any time during a Block.
- Our trained, supportive undergraduate Peer Tutors work one-on-one with students at all levels and across disciplines.
- Our Course Guides are Peer Tutors who have course-specific knowledge and collaborate with the instructor to offer the most appropriate support.
- We offer non-credit workshops about rhetoric and quantitative skills.
- Reference materials about rhetoric and quantitative skills and reasoning are available for use by students and faculty.
If you would like to arrange a one-on-one meeting to discuss academic support, please get in touch with our Learning Commons co-directors Chris Stewart or Ellen Flournoy, or Learning Commons coordinator Anika Watson ’18.
