TEC Program Purpose

The Tutorial & Enrichment Center (TEC) provides access and opportunities for students to expand their learning outside of the classroom through quality academic, supportive programs and resources. These opportunities further promote students in the development of positive academic habits, practice, and behaviors. Further, students will develop critical academic and nonacademic cognitive skills needed to lead to a deeper classroom engagement. Upon completing a 4-year program of study, every graduate of Paine College will be an independent learner with an interest in lifelong learning. The Tutorial & Enrichment Center (TEC) provides programs and services to help all students at Paine College meet this goal.
