What We Do
The MSLC has several roles.
The Math-Science Learning Center (MSLC) is a place where UNO students can find the assistance they need to conquer academic challenges in Math and Science. Model students serve as tutors, supplemental instruction leaders and study group facilitators trained to assist their peers in achieving academic success. The MSLC houses meeting alcoves, study/tutoring space, tutorial computers and reserve study materials. It also offers academic consultation for students seeking to increase their overall learning effectiveness and efficiency.
The MSLC supports faculty who seek help with pedagogic practice related to teaching math and science, especially for large introductory sections, and on curricular development and evaluation (as it pertains to improved student learning).
Math-Science Assessment and Advocate
The MSLC supports assessment of mathematics and science education at UNO in general and of Center’s efforts in particular. Assessment is considered a part of a research driven mission intent on making math and science education more effective in general and specifically at UNO. Most broadly the Center aims to further develop the academic community in Math and Science interested in student success.
