Initiatives & Outreach

The Literacy Center

The Literacy Center at SVSU is located in Gilbertson Hall, in a state-of-the-art facility that fosters motivation for reading and utilizes the latest technology.  Students are assessed to determine their strengths and needs in reading. Our tutors then use these assessments to build individualized lesson plans that maximize student potential. 

Regional Mathematics & Science Center

The SVSU Regional Mathematics and Science Center provides the leadership and support for systemic change in mathematics and science education throughout the SVSU service area for preschool through higher education in both public and private institutions.

School & University Partnerships

Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) is committed to student success as its number one priority. Working in cooperation with the College of Education and the overall mission of SVSU, the School/University Partnership Office seeks to impact all students to realize their academic potential. Consequently, the purpose of this website is not only to disseminate information to all stakeholders but to serve as a resource.
