rooms provide a place where groups of students can work collaboratively
on projects and assignments. The Testing Center is configured to support
computer, traditional, and individual testing while doubling as tutoring
rooms. The Learning Center is an area for students working with the
support of an instructor. The Disability Support Services Lab provides
a variety of assistive technology devices and supports. The Center for
Teaching and Learning provides support space for adjunct faculty.
