English Foundations Center

Location

EF Building
Rooms 1N

The Foundations for Student Success (FSS), a Title III-Part A Grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education, is designing an English Foundations Center for developmental students enrolled in the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP).

The EF 1N classroom will be outfitted with new furniture and laptops to promote the integration of technology and collaboration in the first-year composition course. Additionally, a portion of the Academic Skills Center (ASC) will be redesigned to create a smaller breakout room for the ALP.

A door will lead from the main classroom into the breakout room where Fundamentals of Writing students will continue working on their composition assignments with their English 101 instructor.

The breakout room will also connect students directly to the tutoring services in the ASC. This project will enable a seamless transition for ALP students as they move from one learning environment to the next.

The redesign of the physical context of the ALP involves a partnership between the FSS, English Department, Learning Enhancement, and M&O. Construction begins after spring classes end in May.

The center will open for Fall Semester 2014 classes.
