The Anna Cherrie Epps, Ph.D., Center for Educational Development and Support (CEDS) is a comprehensive academic support unit, established to foster an environment that stimulates and nurtures excellence in learning and teaching in the three schools: Medicine, Dentistry, and Graduate Studies and Research.
We are centrally located on the Meharry campus in the Rolfe Student Center Building. The upper level offers two spacious group study rooms, a classroom with a seating capacity for 35, and a conference room. A break room area is equipped with vending machines and a snack area.
The lower level offers a computer lab for computer-based learning, an instructional learning room for group instruction, and three independent study rooms. An Educational Skills Specialist is on duty to work with students by assessing their academic profiles and developing a learning plan appropriate to each student’s needs. The combined staff works together to ensure that a student’s academic learning needs are met.
The Center for Educational Development and Support (CEDS), Peer Tutor Program, which officially began in August 2007, constitutes an important and effective component of the student services offered by CEDS. The Peer Tutor Program has been nationally certified by the College Reading and Learning Association since 2009.

Tutoring sessions are available upon request to all students. Students can request individual or group tutoring sessions. Group tutoring is five or less students or with your study group.
