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 Commons will house the Writing Center, Peer Tutor Program, Library, Educational Resource Center and Technology Education. These spaces and programs are physically separated at present, diminishing the opportunities for interaction and face-to-face collaboration. The innovative remodeling will allow for a dynamic, centralized focal point of the school where people, ideas, and disciplines converge naturally.
