Center for Academic Excellence

The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) provides high-quality academic assistance for students at Mills College.

CAE is comprised of four departments:

Multilingual Services managed by Margaret Seelie
Peer tutoring, directed by Donald Crampton, Director of Nursing
SASS testing accommodations managed by Gabriella Tempestoso, Student Access and Support Services,
Writing Center, directed by Kara Wittman, Assistant Professor of English

The center is located in the Aurelia Henry Reinhardt (AHR) Hall, B wing. Being close to the heart of campus allows us to serve those students who may have only a short time between lectures. Peer tutoring and SASS testing currently occupy 13 rooms and the Writing Center has two rooms—an inviting space where students feel relaxed and able to interact with the peer tutors. Each room has a whiteboard to facilitate the learning process. Currently one of our rooms is dedicated as a break room, with a sofa, kettle, microwave, and drinks provided.

During reading days the center is open for study and students may occupy any of the study rooms alone or in small groups. During finals students may continue to use the downstairs lounge area and break room.
