Offices and Opportunities
At Muhlenberg College, every endeavor is made to support a student’s effort to successfully navigate the rigors of higher education.
The Academic Resource Center is a department which offers this support to all students through the peer tutoring program, study skills workshops, content workshops, and individual academic assistance.
The Career Center is committed to assisting students with exploration, preparation, and opportunities. We provide resources and support to facilitate an understanding of students’ experiences at Muhlenberg and to make connections so students can meet their goals and make the transition from college to career.
The Health Professions Office is responsible for counseling all students interested in health professions careers. These careers may include doctoral or master level degrees. The college years are for exploring a variety of career options so that students choose a “best fit” upon leaving Muhlenberg. Through guidance, shadowing and internship opportunities, self assessment, and workshops, the Health Professions Office encourages pre-health students to investigate the various ways of providing service to patients of the future.
The Office of Disability Services at Muhlenberg College is committed to ensuring access and nondiscrimination to all programs and services for qualified students with disabilities while maintaining the standards and integrity of the mission of the College. The Office of Disability Services is committed to working with identified students, staff, and faculty, in developing and implementing the most appropriate strategies for a successful learning experience. Understanding that an informed college community is better able to address the multiple issues related to disabilities, the Office of Disability Services strives to keep all constituencies abreast of the most up-to-date information regarding related laws and regulations and the means to achieve compliance and beyond.
The Senior Year Experience coordinates opportunities for students to reflect upon their education in ways that will build lifelong learners, aware of themselves and the worlds around them. The Senior Year Experience is the culmination of undergraduate education, inside and outside the classroom, and helps increase student confidence during the transition to the world of work, additional formal education, and citizenship. Notable elements of this initiative are the Reality MC program (January of the senior year) and the Last Lecture delivered by a faculty member during Senior Week.
Trexler Library is committed to inspiring intellectual curiosity by actively engaging users with diverse sources of quality information and providing opportunities to explore and make connections across disciplines within a liberal arts education. Librarians work collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff, and community users to discover, organize, analyze, create, and share information that will enhance independent, lifelong learning habits.
