The Center for Academic Success (also known as "The Center") The Center for Academic Success provides academic resources to assist students in achieving academic goals. The center supports the University in accomplishing its mission and plays a critical role in the retention of students. Services offered include individual peer tutoring, review sessions, knowledge workshops, academic success strategies, individual academic assistance and guidance, access to the Writing Center and referrals to the Office of Disability Services.
The Center for Ethics and Religion The mission of the Center is to educate - through dialogue - the Queens community and the broader community on ethics and religion, paying particular attention to the intersection of those two aspects of our lives. The Center promotes public awareness of the centrality of ethics and religion at the university and of Queens' strong ties with The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Past highlights include a partnership with Union Seminary, sponsoring a student Habitat build in China, and bringing to the University's historic Myers Park campus internationally recognized speakers such as Templeton Prize Winner the Reverend Dr. John Polkinghorne and Dr. Francis Collins, director of the Human Genome Project.
The McColl School's Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership The McColl School's Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership engages 100 of the city's leading entrepreneurs in the growth and development of the "entrepreneurial spirit" in the Charlotte region, and exposes students, faculty, and community with an up-close look at the successes and challenges of accomplished executives through events like the McColl School's Leaders in Action series, EMBA Leadership Forums, and Entrepreneurial Leadership Circle "War Stories." The Center additionally focuses on developing the skills, capabilities, and confidence of prospective and existing entrepreneurs through exceptional teaching, support of scholarship, and meaningful service to the entrepreneurial community.
