Learning the skills to balance one’s life, manage one’s time and become better at communicating and organizing can be key to a successful career and to accomplishing your goals both at the university and in your home life.
The Center for Educational Excellence and several other departments on campus offer ways to learn about some basic ins and outs about how to better manage your time and get a better balance in your life. Please see some of the links on this page for resources.
