CENTER FOR WORLD LANGUAGES AND CULTURES

The Center for World Languages and Cultures is here to support and enrich your study of languages and cultures at DU. Through the exploration and experience of languages and cultures with our local and global communities and partners, we promote engaged learning, teaching, and practice of the world's languages and cultures and integrate languages and cultures into all disciplines and fields of study to build and support interculturally competent communities. Come to the CWLC to work with language coaches, take undergraduate placement or graduate proficiency exams, study less-commonly taught languages, and prepare for study abroad.

SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING CENTER

The Science and Engineering Center is a collaborative space staffed by undergraduate and graduate learning assistants (LAs) trained to assist students with first and second year biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering lecture and laboratory courses. Our goal is to help students grow as problemsolvers by assisting with homework sets, lab reports, and preparing for exams. The Science and Engineering Center is not a one-on-one tutoring center, but is rather a support system where students can get guidance from TAs as well as their peers. This center is open to all DU students. All services are free. Located in the north-west corner of the main floor of the Anderson Academic Commons (west of the writing center).
