Center for Academic Excellence – Fall 2014 Updates

CAEBlogOn behalf of everyone working with the Center for Academic Excellence, welcome back to campus everyone! And for those of you who are new, we look forward to meeting and serving you over the course of the next several years!

The C.A.E. is slated to  resume services on September 8th. As in years past, we will be hosting the Writing Learning Center, AOP tutoring, International Student & Scholar Services tutoring, and other educational services.

In addition to these services, the C.A.E. will also be sponsoring an expanded number of workshops this year, including:

  • Library instruction for transfer students
  • Library instruction for international students
  • Time management
  • Resource evaluation
  • Annotated bibliographies…

…and many more. You’ll be hearing more about our workshop offerings, including dates and times, very shortly.

Also, save the date! The C.A.E. Open House will be returning to the main floor of the Milne Library on September 24th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. We’ll be sharing information about various tutoring and learning centers, and recognizing all the hard work done by your peer tutors across campus.

Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!

Come to the Center for Academic Excellence Open House

CAEOpenHouseAre you a student looking for writing help?  The Center for Academic Excellence (C.A.E.) houses tutors from the Writing Learning Center for six days per week.  Are you having problems finding scholarly articles for a tricky research subject?  The C.A.E. has a reference librarian on-call until closing every day of week.  Are you an adviser or mentor trying to help someone locate educational assistance outside of the classroom?  The C.A.E. acts as a clearinghouse for numerous campus support services and can point you in the right direction.

The C.A.E. already offers something for pretty much everyone here at SUNY Geneseo, but we are not finished expanding yet.  Growing and improving the university’s educational support services network is seen as vital part of SUNY Geneseo’s long-term plans and goals, and we are doing our best to make this plan a reality.  Starting this spring semester, the C.A.E. will be teaming up with departments all over campus to develop a series of workshops to help students with various challenges—from writing an annotated bibliography, to preparing and presenting at GREAT Day,  We are also beginning to develop some online instructional materials for students so we can continue to serve you from the comfort of your own home or dorm.

Are you interested in learning more about the C.A.E. and what it has to offer you?  Visit our webpage at go.geneseo.edu/cae, where you can view a full list of our services, our hours of operation, and comprehensive lists of all the other programs operating around campus.  You could also show up to our first annual C.A.E. Open House this Thursday, November 14th, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm on the main floor of the Milne Library.  We have invited representatives from all the different campus learning centers to come answer questions and advertise their services.  There will be free food and drink for attendees, and who knows; you might just find a service or program that benefits you.

Here’s hoping we see you there!
