Tutoring Center (TC) staff work closely with colleagues across campus to increase student convenience and access to tutorial services and to support our shared mission to promote the academic success of our students. In the three key partnerships highlighted below, the TC’s intent is to offer targeted service in satellite locations and to encourage students in those areas to access additional academic support in our primary Michener Library location. These collaborative partnerships involve joint program responsibility and resource sharing, which allow us to provide the best possible service to UNC students.
The Center for Human Enrichment (CHE)
In a long-standing partnership, the TC oversees English tutoring offered through the federally-funded CHE to a select population of UNC undergraduate students. CHE tutoring employs three peer tutors each semester to support the Center’s expanded English program. The peer tutors provide individual English support for all CHE students and participate as in-class tutors for the English 122 and 123 sections available to first-year CHE students. For more information about CHE, visit the Center’s website at http://www.unco.edu/che/
Housing & Residential Education
The TC’s partnership with Housing & Residential Education began with a pilot program in Fall 2011 to provide satellite tutorial service in Harrison Hall through the Natural Health Science Learning Community. Due to the pilot’s success, we expanded our collaboration to offer tutorial service through four learning communities, beginning in Fall 2012: biology, business, elementary education, and pre-nursing.

Student-Athlete Academic Success Center (SAASC)
The TC’s collaboration with the SAASC is designed to meet the specific needs of UNC’s student-athletes. Along with daytime tutoring available in our primary Michener Library location, the TC offers additional academic support to student-athletes in the SAASC during designated hours as part of the Center’s night study hall.
