Campus Partners

Explore Partners

We understand that each of our 282 students is unique in their styles of learning, areas of interest, and past experiences. This is why we have created strong relationships with a number of campus and community partners to offer the absolute best services and connections. Some of our partners include:

Center for Academic Success- Trains and develops former Explore students to serve as in-house tutors Monday - Thursday, as well as for midterm madness group study sessions

Center for Academic Enrichment - home to the Living Learning Communities and why we do what we do. LLCs have been shown to increase student academic success, ease the transition to college, and encourage involvement in campus activities.

College of Sciences - our host office! Science and Math are the foundations on which we build our research, technological advancements, and the common glue that holds our relationships together.

Pre Health Advising - personalized prehealth overview sessions for Explore students as well as special in-house and virtual office hours with professional and peer advisors

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) - Undergraduate student representatives join us in Caldwell hall to discuss scholarships, research openings, and help students to develop their skills to find research positions that match their strengths and interests.

Housing and Residence Life - It would be hard to host a living and learning program without a place to live! Our Peer Leaders (RAs on many campuses) and Hall Directors help to ensure that every student receives an outstanding First Year Experience from move-in to move-out.
