Learning Resources–GEMS Center

The Office of Student Success and Assessment operates the GEMS Center (Gateways to Engagement, Mastery and Success) which offers assistance to students in writing, mathematics, multiple science fields, reading, study skills, and other academic disciplines. These services are available through individual and small group appointments, workshops, short courses, and a variety of online and instructional technologies.  

The Math Lab gives short‑term and semester‑long support for a variety of introductory and advanced mathematics courses. Students may drop in or make appointments to visit with a math tutor on a regular basis.  

The Writing Center offers one-to-one and small group assistance with general and advanced writing assignments and overall writing skills. Appointments are strongly recommended.  

The GEMS Center also offers facilitated group study and review sessions as a supplement to many UT Dallas courses. Students should check the center´s website for offerings and additional availability of peer-led team learning (PLTL) and tutoring in specific subjects.  

Academic success advisors are available for individual student appointments to discuss study skills, time management, note-taking, test taking and preparation, and other success strategies. All students enrolled at UT Dallas are eligible for these services.  

The GEMS Center´s main offices, located in CN 1.126, may be contacted by calling 972.883.6707, by e-mail at: [email protected], or on the web at
