The construction of the new Duquès Academic Success Center — a state-of-the-art learning facility to promote student success — served as the centerpiece for the rebranding of the Mitchell College campus.

Sitting high in the center of the campus, overlooking the Thames River, the building has designated spaces for peer study groups, classroom instruction, testing and research — along with meeting space for advisors, specialists, tutors and career staff. This versatile center is home to multiple departments and functions including the college’s Bentsen Learning Center, Registrar Office, Academic Advising Center, Disability Student Services, Career Services and Tutoring Center.
