Coordinator Profiles

The CAE coordinators support students with navigating academic services provided by the peer tutors, the Writing Center, and Multilingual Services. They assist students with determining which services will fit their needs and with making appointments. Coordinators book meeting rooms within the Reinhardt Building for workshops or study sessions and administer SASS testing.
