Active Learning

New Library at University of Saint Mary

St. Mary University

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. The application period for Cycle 4 of the ALC Grant begins on Friday, December 1, 2017 and will remain open until Friday, February 2, 2018.
