Science Learning Center (SLC)

The Science Learning Center (SLC) is sponsored by the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) to support teaching and learning in the natural sciences. We have two centers, each providing computer labs, meeting alcoves, study space and a loan desk for reserve and study materials.

Thinking in Blue

If you're a Chem 210 student in Fall 2018, you should visit the SLC and check out the new Thinking in Blue slideshow. Professor Brian Coppola has created slideshows that will run weekly on the SLC's digital display. Each slideshow is built on the question "What should I be able to do now?" Changing every 15 seconds, the 60 slides will challenge students to think about the how and why rather than simply produce an answer, leading to deeper, long term learning.



Be a Victor

We strive to support our students and faculty on the frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, SLC needs you—because the world needs Victors.
