Learning Commons

Learning Commons

As the intellectual and social heart of campus, the Learning Commons puts knowledge creation at the fore of the educational experience. Students develop patterns of discovery and achievement that last a lifetime, with abundant opportunities to discern what learning styles and environments work best for them.

The use of flexible and more open physical spaces, new ways of using technology for accessing resources, and the expertise of skilled specialists, such as technologists and digital media professionals, turn what was once the familiar library into an environment infused with creative energy and engaged learning. The design of the Learning Commons also ensures adaptability to future advances in teaching and learning.
