Student Employment & Training
Help your peers to succeed while taking advantage of leadership opportunities along the way.
Make a Difference
Learning Centers student employees work one-on-one and in group and classroom settings to help their peers develop their skills and reach their full academic potential.
Deepen Your Knowledge
One of the best ways to gain a deeper understanding of the material you are studying is to teach it to others. By helping your fellow students to learn the material, you help yourself to solidify, expand, and retain your knowledge of the subject.
