Student Learning & Engagement

Student Learning and Engagement (SLE) focuses on creating a community of students, researchers and community members that is welcoming and inclusive of all learning styles and experiences. We do this by being antiracist and prioritizing the needs of students, staff and faculty from underrepresented groups.

SLE creates interactive learning experiences and curricular instruction programming to embed critical literacies and research skills across campus. We also leverage campus and community partnerships to enhance support of first generation and historically underserved students.

We do this through:

  • Offering consultations and instruction in multiple formats
  • Designing and facilitating tutorials, trainings, and certifications
  • Developing instructional resources for instructors across campus
  • Creating interactive learning experiences for students of all backgrounds, levels, and abilities
  • Campus outreach and partnerships

Learning & Student Success

The Learning and Student Success unit is tasked with empowering and ensuring students from all backgrounds, abilities and interests have access to library facilities, resources and support they need in order to be a success at the University of Arizona. We do this by supporting the University’s new General Education Refresh and supporting student centers and student-success focused units on campus for consultation and planning, targeted outreach and workshops and creating a sustainable infrastructure for student learning tools and resources.
