Our Center, in the Bagwell College of Education at Kennesaw State University, is housed in the rooms connected to the reception area in ECF 225. The new education building houses this state of the art literacy center, complete with several rooms for private assessment and tutoring. All private tutoring rooms are equipped with video/audio recording equipment. The facility welcomes students of multiple ages and their families. Students of all ages have opportunities to expand their literacy using texts, technology, and varied resources in a comfortable and safe environment. The Center may also be used for professional development for educators. Please contact the Director for more information.
