Center for Academic Excellence

Buena Vista University’s Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) offers free academic support to any and all students who need extra help or who simply want to enrich their learning experience.

COVID-19 Mitigation Practices in the CAE

The CAE has implemented the following mitigation practices for the health and safety of our students and staff.

  • Students may choose to meet with a tutor via Zoom or socially distanced, face-to-face in the CAE.  Know that if you choose to meet in the CAE you will be separated from the tutor by a plexi-glass shield.
  • Tables are sanitized after each use.
  • The check-in computers are sanitized after each use.
