Center for Academic Enhancement

The Center for Academic Enhancement (CAE) supports the Mission of the University, in which the charge to educate students to assume responsibilities toward God, society, and self, by instilling a commitment to life-long learning, runs deep.

The Center offers an agenda of diverse services, at no cost, designed to serve the learning needs of students at all levels of achievement. It is the goal of the CAE to help students improve skills in order to achieve greater academic success, and to encourage them to take full advantage of the learning experience. We work in concert with faculty, staff, and all other academic and student services.
