This page provides general information about the Collaborative Learning Center.

Vision Statement

We aim to be a center for student engagement and a place for students to hone critical thinking and analytical skills. We strive to foster collaborative professional relationships between faculty and center services. We envision becoming a more visible presence on campus by augmenting our current services to assist student retention.


Active Learning

The CLC encourages students to take an active role in their learning by participating fully in their tutoring sessions. In addition, the CLC believes in demystifying the academic process for students in order for them to gain confidence in their abilities to transfer knowledge and skills from the theoretical to the practical.


The CLC services a diverse population and values its clients.  The CLC promotes mutual respect as a key element in its interactions with the college community and understands the importance of communicating this philosophy to its clients.

Hospitable Atmosphere

The CLC maintains an atmosphere free of judgment and condemnation, and supports and promotes a welcoming, courteous learning space.

Model Best Academic Practices

The CLC prides itself on leading by example in peer tutoring sessions. Modelling and scaffolding are two of the major strategies used to empower students’ mastery of their learning process.
