The E2: Engage & Excel program offers a multifaceted support system available at The University of Alabama in Huntsville. It serves all three populations at the university: undergraduate students, graduate-level students, and faculty. Clients may be recommended to our program or come as a self-referral/walk-in. The E2 program uses reading methods (such as the SQ5R, individualized learning strategies, CAAI, etc.), evidence-based accent modification, mindfulness and anxiety release techniques, planning skills, and communicative practices focusing on relationship building to support and promote the learners & teachers of our university community. Upon booking the initial appointment, the client is interviewed and assessed for areas of needed support. 45-minute sessions are then booked throughout the semester on a regular basis (once a week or twice a week). The sessions may be one on one meetings or in small groups of up to 4 people. Dr. Ryan Cate Gibson is the lead instructor for E2.
