Located in the Scarborough Library, the “intellectual heart of the campus,” the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides support to students and teachers alike. Under the direction of Dr. Laura Renninger, CTL offers students assistance with advising, writing, study skills, technology, and tutoring in any subject ranging from mathematics to foreign languages to music. For teachers, CTL provides pedagogical and technological classroom resources through trainings and consultations. CTL is the hub where excitement about learning permeates every corner, every hallway, every room, and every virtual space on campus.
