Instructional Design Librarian, Jocelyn Ireland and student


Research on student success tells us that learners benefit from nurturing, engaged conversation, supported risk taking, collaborative learning spaces, and access to current technologies.

The Mandia Family Learning Commons provides these in the form of holistic tutoring, an open computer lab, research assistance, and a team of peers and professionals dedicated to student-centered learning. 

Our services are free and available to all enrolled students.

The mission of the Learning Commons is to provide holistic support and an enriched pathway to graduation through student-centered academic support across disciplines, connecting students to resources, and empowering them to become independent, self-advocating, and resourceful learners.

The vision of the Learning Commons is to become a place where both faculty and students willingly rely on our resources, where they are free to question, take risks, and effectively achieve their academic and pedagogical goals.

The purpose of the Learning Commons is to provide students with the resources and  tools necessary to eliminate barriers to their success.
