Candler offers a variety of programs and resources to help students thrive in the classroom. Workshops, tutoring sessions, and funds for leadership development are a few of the ways that the Office of Student Programming (OSP) encourages Candler students to use and develop their gifts.
Candler offers academic support to all interested students through the Candler Writing Center Programs, located in CST 311 and directed by Ryan T. Woods, Writing & Academic Skills Intructor. Ryan can be contacted at email@example.com.
One on One Tutoring where students are encouraged to bring their writing assignments for thirty minute sessions. Sign-up sheets are available at the front desk in the OSP.
The Academic Writing Workshops include an array of opportunities to facilitate academic success. From basic academic skills, to refreshers on grammar and writing practices, to advice on the particular types of writing required in Candler courses, the Writing Center Programs support students in doing their best.
The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program is designed to meet the needs of Candler’s diverse international student community. An ESOL course, taught by Ms. Audrey Roberson, aids first-year students in developing written and oral English language skills. In addition to classroom instruction, tutors, and conversation partners are available to provide one-on-one assistance for ESOL students at different levels of language proficiency. Tutoring sessions are held in the OSP, CST 311.
For international students and others for whom English is not the first language, the OSP coordinates ESOL assessments and courses in written and oral communication. Courses are tailored to support students’ academic success in theological studies at Candler.
Through the OSP, Candler encourages attendance at professional conferences and learning experiences events offered by other organizations. The Leadership Development Fund offers financial support for these experiences. Students who participate in these learning experiences are asked to share their findings with others at Candler both in academic and informal situations. To complete an application for the leadership development fund, click here, fill it out, print it, and return it to the OSP in CST 311.
Candler prepares leaders for the church throughout the world and offers students the opportunity to enrich their learning experience by participating in a variety of international study programs. Through academic exchanges, travel seminars, and internships, students learn about diverse cultures and faith communities. As they witness and participate in God’s work around the world, Candler students transform their own vision of what it means to be faithful and creative leaders.
