Help Us Name Our New Tutoring Space!

The Suggest a Name Form is now closed. Stay tuned for our NEW name announcement in early January, 2022. 

The Academic Success Centre (ASC) is excited to announce the opening of its newly renovated space at the Notre Dame Campus (NDC). This space has been modernized and equipped to support tutoring and staff work areas. Now that the space is ready to use, it needs a new name to reflect the incredible teaching and learning that takes place in tutoring spaces.

We requested your input to come up with a name that reflects the active and collaborative learning and review that happens here. We received 53 name suggestions! 

Choosing the final name: what is our selection process?

First, our managers will review the list of names. Then, staff in Library and Academic Services (Academic Success Centre, Library, Assessment Services), will be given an opportunity to vote for their favourite. When the results of the vote are in, it will be finalized by our leadership team, and we will make a public announcement in early January.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to submit an idea. If yours is selected, you will have the honour of knowing this name will be referenced a million times over and will become an integral part of the ASC and its services for years to come!

Tips for Choosing a Great Name

Sometimes great names come easy, but we do have a few tips to guide you.

We think a great name has these qualities:

  1. Positive, with a friendly tone
  2. Easy to remember
  3. Short (4 syllables or less)
  4. Unique at the Polytech
  5. Inclusive, welcoming, and respectful to all
