Information about the Learning Commons

From Student Commons to Learning Commons 

The faculty and staff of the Rebecca Crown Library and Student Success and Engagement, along with other stakeholders, have created a student-focused plan with centralized services, study rooms, social and gathering spaces, and more. Without reducing the functions of the library, these elements are distributed throughout the building to further enhance how students learn — socially, with a cup of coffee (lower level), in a structured environment with a tutor or librarian (main floor), or through independent study (second floor). 

The university’s deepest goals for student success and engagement can best be achieved through a renewed focus on student learning located in the true heart of campus — the library. New partnerships between the Rebecca Crown Library, the Division of Student Success and Engagement, Information Technology, and the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, will ensure a robust service delivery.
