Pingree School Learning Commons

Welcome to the Pingree School Learning Commons, an innovative environment for teaching and learning that ensures all of our students have access to the best tools, resources, skills, and supports available. Faculty and staff from four departments work together as a team to empower students to think critically, to encourage a love of learning, and to provide supports to our diverse, academic community.

What's Next for Pingree's Learning Commons? 

By centralizing interdisciplinary resources and providing state-of-the-art technology, the next phase of the Pingree Learning Commons will maximize the opportunities for realizing the school’s goals. Our work has earned us an Edward E. Ford Foundation Grant to continue program development and renovations in our library that will enhance our ability to deliver a learning commons program that affords more peer-to-peer learning, open access to information and resources, flexible work environments, networking opportunities, diversification of cultural expression, and expanded education on the shifting attitudes towards intellectual property and media literacy. This evolution ultimately leads to empowered learning and citizenship skills for students.
