The Learning, Teaching & Research Center (LTRC) is located in the Main Library in the space to the left of the stained-glass window depicting Lady Cornaro. The LTRC offers two very important resources for students: The Writing Center and the Quantitative Reasoning Center (Q-Center).
The Writing Center provides peer-to-peer writing consultations at all stages of the writing process and for any written, oral, or digital media project. To learn more, visit the Writing Center website.
The Q-Center is a drop-in center for students to learn from peers who are trained to help with quantitative learning/reasoning. Q-Tutors can help with introductory courses in Chemistry, Physics, Math, and other designated QA (Quantitative Analysis) courses. To learn more, visit the Q-Center's website.
