Our division is committed to supporting and preparing students for their professional technical, transfer to four-year institutions, programs, citizenship, and employment. We do this by offering quality instruction in the social sciences, arts and humanities, mathematics, sciences, and both written and oral communication, along with electives that put students on a path to transfer or meaningful work. All general education credits will transfer to other state colleges or universities and regularly out of state. For students who may decide to pursue a higher degree, this is an essential component of proactive educational planning and lifelong learning.
General Education faculty members are experts in their field of instruction and dedicated to making their classes interesting and relevant, to ensure students develop the critical thinking skills necessary to succeed in their programs and in life.
Academic Support Project
The Academic Support Project includes the CEI Tutoring Center, a free service to students who need assistance in course work, individualized or group tutoring that is specific to program courses. It also includes weekly Student Success Workshops on a variety of topics from note-taking to stress-management. Workshops are held at noon and are free to any CEI student or employee.
The Tutoring Center is located in the Sessions building in room 135. It is a friendly, welcoming environment for students to study or seek academic help. The Tutoring Center includes nine networked computers and its hours vary slightly every semester, but tutors are available every day, often into the evening. For a current schedule, check with our Tutoring Center Coordinator, Julie Kaufman (535-5340) or drop by and pick up a schedule.
