Collaborative Learning Center

The Collaborative Learning Center (CLC) is MSU’s source for training peer educators—including tutors, supplemental instruction leaders, undergraduate learning assistants, recitation leaders, and academic coaches—to deliver effective study skills and learning strategies, collaborative learning techniques, and classroom assessment techniques. The CLC provides training in “how to learn” with “what to learn.” Peer educators learn about academic success skills and study skills and how to apply them to their role. The CLC also provides Academic Success skills workshops available to all MSU students, with a focus on first and second year students who are either on probation, enrolled in a Freshman Seminar (UGS) course or have time management or anxiety issues. In addition to training peer educators and providing success skills workshops, the CLC are also experts on non-cognitive indicators of academic success.
