Virtual Learning Support

These are extraordinary times, times that will challenge us to work together, to seek support, to offer support. The McGraw Center is here to support ALL students-- first years through seniors--to adapt to the new and unfamiliar ways you are being taught and the expectations and demands that go with these changes to so many aspects of academic life. We want to reassure you that we intend to face these challenging circumstances with a spirit of camaraderie, resourcefulness and resilience, and to tackle difficulties as they arise creatively and strategically.

The McGraw Center has moved all of its programming—tutoring, learning consultations, and workshops--to virtual synchronous formats using Zoom and we’ve even added new services including student-led study groups and course jumpstarts. At the same time, we believe that helping students work collaboratively with peers will be crucial during this period of virtual instruction and remote learning and so we encourage you to reach out to friends and classmates to work together. Using resources and working collaboratively can be helpful not only academically but also for managing the increased stresses many are encountering in other parts of their lives. We’re glad we are here to support you during these challenging times and we look forward to working with you this fall and beyond.
