About the AEC

The Academic Enhancement Center (AEC) supports student learning and academic success through scaffolding student engagement with course content, helping with the development of metacognitive strategies and skills, critical thinking, writing, time management, and test-taking skills. Our programs are primarily peer-to-peer, enabling us to support the development of collaborative learning skills for all students, as well as teaching and leadership skills for student staff. The AEC offers unique resources including tutoring in the STEM & BUS disciplines; Academic Skills Development programming, including UCS 160; and the Writing Center for helping students at all levels of writing skills development.


The mission of the Academic Enhancement Center is to help students invest in their academic success. Our learning support programs and services empower students to become more skillful and successful. We are committed to responding to student needs, collaborating with faculty and providing professional development for our student staff with the goal of enhancing student learning.
