Create an Easier Path to Learning

Discover Your Strengths, Build New Skills

Feeling overwhelmed with schoolwork? Putting things off until the last moment? Scrambling to turn in quality work? We get it. Learning in college is much more intense than learning in high school. When your academic load seems overwhelming and impossible to navigate, we've got the tools for you to manage it all. We'll help you figure out what learning strategies work best for your skills, then strengthen those skills and teach you new techniques along the way.

Everybody's Different

There isn't one correct way to learn and study. Everyone has a different schedule, workload, and lifestyle. This creates diversity in the way students learn, retain new information, and perform in the classroom. Trying out new study methods can be helpful, but also confusing and time-consuming. Luckily, our staff is here to help take the guessing out of studying and performing better on tests. We offer a variety of services and resources so you can discover the methods that work best for you.

Study Skills Workshops

For Students

Not earning the grades you want? Do you sometimes "go blank" during a test? Stressing about an upcoming assignment? You're not alone. Most students experience these challenges. The good thing is, we can show you how to make the time you spend studying or preparing more effective. That way, you can tackle your next project or assessment with more confidence.

The Learning Resources Center (LRC) provides all CU Denver fee-paying students a variety of scheduled, hour-long workshops to teach strategies that can help take the stress out of school.

  • General study skills
  • Discover new learning strategies
  • Note-taking
  • Time management
  • Avoiding procrastination
  • Taking tests
  • Coping with test anxiety
  • Wellness and stress management
