CETL—For Undergraduate Students

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is a resource available to all students in the College. All kinds of students with all kinds of GPAs and academic records make use of our programs. We work with strong students who wish to become even better, as well as with students who have not yet tapped into the strategies needed to succeed in college, and everyone in between.

Study Group

We offer an extensive study group and Workshop program, individual study skills support, study skills workshops and a study skills course, disability support, and the College Tutoring Program.

To make an appointment or to learn more, stop by our office in 1-154 Dewey Hall, call us at (585) 275-9049, or send an email.

Class of 2019: Join Us for UR Transition
UR Transition is a pre-orientation program designed to support the needs of students with disabilities beginning their academic journey as members of the College. This program will bring students with disabilities and their families together with College services to cultivate supportive relationships and encourage self-advocacy skills, which in turn will ease the transition from previous educational environments to the UR. Students and parents will attend workshops and tours facilitated by CETL Access Coordinators and Study Skills Consultants, accompanied by CETL Student Mentors. Learn more
