Active Learning

New Library at University of Saint Mary

A Kansas university reimagined an existing library space to create an active, energizing campus center.

With the help of the Steelcase Active Learning Center grant, the University of Saint Mary reimagined a library space to encourage learning and collaboration while improving connections between students, faculty and the community. The library space is now able to host a wide range of learning opportunities including formal classroom discussion, private study, collaborative small group work and community events such as chess and even yoga.
