Learning Commons are an integrated component with the College-wide active learning experience and foster greater student engagement by meeting student needs in a dynamic and flexible environment. Libraries are undergoing physical and programmatic changes and are less about books and more about supporting learning activities.
Integrated Instructional Learning Environments
The College embraces a culture of teaching and learning as the foundation of its mission, and supporting innovation in space, technology, and teaching practices serves as the core for student learning and success. To that end, the transformation of learning spaces beyond the traditional format to accommodate additional learning experiences such as experiential and active learning environments, helps better support the learning needs of students.
Integrated Student Success Model
The College dedicates significant resources focused on student success including faculty and staff, space, equipment, and technology. Successful integration of these resources is fundamental to the learning experience, so that the College is a welcoming environment for students that promotes learning.
A Student-Ready College provides an experience for students that is welcoming, simple to understand, provides a clear pathway, and breaks down barriers. Streamlined processes which are more student-centric ensure that students get through the door and on their desired pathway more quickly.
Scheduling and Facility Utilization
A student-centered schedule of classes is offered and supports student access and success.
Campus Character and Quality
A Student-Ready College provides a welcoming and easily navigated experience for students and uses space effectively to maximize the student experience.
Redesigned workspace environments will promote more collegiality, enhance spatial quality, provide flexibility and increased efficiency, and support a culture of collaboration.
Building and maintaining strong P-20 partnerships is essential for the student pathways to success. The dual enrollment (Early College High Schools) and dual credit partnerships with local ISDs support student transition to college.
