Resources for Faculty
The services in the Center for Learning Excellence provide MacMurray students with academic support through high quality tutoring in a myriad of subjects, study group facilitation, help with test anxiety, study tips, time and stress management, avoiding plagiarism, and much more. We have computers and printing available as well as study tables for group work. We are not here strictly for students, however, as we can provide a number of services for you as well.
