About Us

Our Mission

The Thomas J. Edwards Undergraduate Learning Center offers students an opportunity to develop their learning skills through credit-bearing courses in algebra and trigonometry.  Qualified instructors present courses in a personalized atmosphere enhanced by tutorial assistance.

ULC courses are open to any undergraduate student enrolled at the university. While the center is not a degree-awarding program, it does offer courses that carry regular academic credit.

Fundamental to the center is its free tutoring program, available on a walk-in basis, to university-enrolled undergraduate students.  The Math Place offers students a comfortable and encouraging environment to receive assistance with their learning.  Tutoring is offered for the following courses: ULC 147, ULC 148, MTH 121, MTH 122, MTH 131, MTH 141, & MTH 142.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Math Place is offering tutoring via its Discord server for the Spring 2021 semester.  For instructions to access the Math Place, click here (please note that you will need to log in with your UB credentials to do so).
