Academic Library Learning Commons Updates

Vision & Timeline


As a key partner in the college’s objective to support student success, the goal of the Academic Library/Learning Commons (which will include the Library, Learning Center, Disability Resources, and more) is to
  • Provide seamless access to services tailored to a variety of learning styles and resources responsive to the changing cultural, research, and informational needs of our community
  • Be the lungs of the college by breathing life into transformative learning experiences that encourages critical inquiry, collaboration, self-reflection, and civic engagement.
  • Provide a rich and vibrant college hub with private/alone, private/together, public/alone, and public/together spaces to fill the needs of our learning community.
  • Cultivate relationships within our communities through educational and cultural opportunities.
