The CLR is located in the lower level of the Marvin K. Peterson Library. It includes: the Math, Science, and Business Lab; the Writing Lab; the Computer Lab; the Peer Tutoring Program; and our Workshop Series.
In the Center for Learning Resources (CLR), students can find academic support with writing assignments and presentations, ESL, and most freshman- and sophomore-level courses in math, science, and business. Some upper-level undergraduate assistance is provided as well, but graduate-level support is predominantly restricted to the Writing Lab and Computer Lab and does not typically cover class-based content. However, there are graduate peer tutors on staff for select subjects, and they do cover class-based content. The Peer Tutoring Program consists of about 15 tutors based out of satellite locations around campus and generally offers help with major-specific classes for undergraduate and select graduate programs. We provide free tutoring and writing skills assistance to help students with good grades who want to do even better as well as those who are struggling and want to improve.
CLR Mission Statement
The mission of the Center for Learning Resources (CLR) is to provide academic content support to the students of the University of New Haven using metacognitive strategies that help students become aware of and learn to apply optimal learning processes in the pursuit of creating independent learners. CLR tutors focus sessions on discussions of concepts and processes and typically use external examples to help students grasp and apply the material. In the Writing Lab, tutors address papers with the goals of helping students recognize patterns of strengths and weaknesses and learning to independently correct the latter. The CLR promotes an environment of nonjudgmental support, listening to the needs of our students, and working to provide lessons geared toward the individual learning style of each student.
