Center for Academic Excellence

The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) is a one-stop resource to help you reach your fullest potential. With units dedicated to helping you with writing, math and science, the center also provides peer tutoring in every subject and academic coaching to improve overall study skills.

We take pride in fostering collaborative learning and believe that emphasizing the reciprocal nature of knowledge and promoting respect for the diverse talents, beliefs and backgrounds of members of the Drew community is at the core of a true liberal arts education.

The services at the CAE are free to all Drew students, faculty and staff.
