About the Teaching and Learning Center
The Teaching and Learning Center is funded by the Title V-Hispanic Servings Institutions (HSI)Program under the U.S. Department of Education. The title of the Title V-HSI grant which was awarded to SMC is Building Foundations for Academic and Career Success. The aim of this project is to support low-income, Latino, and other traditionally underrepresented students as they pursue their academic and career goals.
At the heart of this grant will be SMC's new Teaching and Learning Center (TLC), which will offer an annual Faculty Summer Institute, quarterly seminars for all faculty, departmental workshops that target career-specific improvements in math, English, and content specific-courses, and customized individual and small group support.
