The Jose Calhoun Learning Center
The Calhoun Learning Center, located on the third floor of Griswold Library, offers academic support services to all students of the College. Services are provided free of charge to GMC students. The Center organizes academic skills workshops and strategy and skills instruction. It also provides tutoring, organizes study-tables, and provides a quiet environment conducive to studying and learning.
Center for Careers, Advising, and Teaching
During the four years at Green Mountain College, you’ll be exploring personal and professional goals with faculty and staff in the classroom and field, mapping your progress toward graduation and beyond. The new Center for Careers, Advising, and Teaching (or CAT) is part of the College’s “Strategies for Student Success” program. Strategies for Student Success includes a curriculum designed to help you excel and an integrated advising program designed to help you develop and meet your goals. The CAT Center in Withey Hall houses the Office of Career and Personal Development, and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
Broaden Your Horizons
Green Mountain College fosters an international outlook, because the economic and environmental challenges we face are truly global in scale. Faculty members offer courses overseas, in places like Brazil, China, Italy, New Zealand and Nepal, and we maintain student-exchange programs with the University of Wales-Aberystwyth, Nagoya University in Japan and South Korea’s Hannam University. One of our most popular travel opportunities comes through the Eco League, a consortium of six environmentally themed colleges stretching from Maine to Alaska.
