Build community, meet for group projects, study individually, and find resources and opportunities to help you reach your goals—all in the Leadership, Learning and Community Center.

Here, in the lower level of the Jacobs Management Center, you will find several bright, colorful spaces dedicated exclusively to School of Management students:

  • The Frank and Marilyn Clement Undergraduate Community Hub – The heart of life in the center, with plenty of comfortable seating and space to conduct group meetings or catch up with friends.
  • Learning Hub – A quiet place to get work done and take advantage of tutoring services. 
  • State-of-the-art classrooms – Two recitation classrooms feature six-person workstations with laptops and power hookups for each student, along with a flatscreen TV on which the instructor or students can broadcast to the entire class simultaneously. A third classroom seats 40 students, with movable seating that can be arranged to best suit the class or event.

For each course, there are three ways you can work with a peer tutor.

  1. Content support: If you are struggling to understand course material, our tutors can show you new ways to look at and learn the information. Sometimes it helps to hear content explained in a different format, question small details or clarify your notes. Our tutors can walk you through the material and add clarity.
  2. Organize to study: If you are overwhelmed by everything you need to know for a test, our tutors can help. Learn how to organize your material to prepare for upcoming papers, quizzes or exams.
  3. Knowledge check: Sometimes you just need to make sure you got it right. Ask your tutor one question, or spend an hour reviewing theories, formulas and content. You'll find out if you are on track, so you can walk into class confidently.
