Center for Learning & Teaching

At CMU’s Center for Learning and Teaching, students are provided resources to support academic goals and success. They are encouraged to ask questions and study together, and have access to a computer lab as well as tutors in writing, mathematics, study skills, and other academic areas. Special services are provided for those diagnosed with learning disabilities.

The Center for Learning and Teaching is located on the first floor of the Smiley Library in Cupples Hall.

Tutors at CMU

Face it, CMU classes are challenging, and few students are outstanding in every field. That’s where our tutors come in. They are fellow students who know what you’re going through. Their only task is to assist fellow students who need a little additional support. If and when the time comes, you can count on them to have your back. Tutors and schedules for Fall 2018 are available here.
