The Academic Center for Excellence at Salve Regina University, which houses the Writing Center, subject tutoring, ESL, Disability Services and learning strategies support moved to the library a little more than a year ago and we absolutely love it, as do the students.  We are so much more accessible to and used by students here, especially in the evenings. Our long glass wall allows students who have not yet used us to peer inside (although there is a frosted privacy stripe horizontally down the center at seat level) and see that the space is bright, inviting, and - most importantly - populated with lots of students just like them working together. It says, "Come in and join us!" Our Writing Center also collaborates with the library on student research projects and we  - the library staff and the ACE staff - work together with the First Year Experience team to orient the first year students to all the supplemental services housed in the building.  Overall, our being in the library, and such an integral part of the library at that, sends a clear message to students that our department is not just for struggling students who are failing classes but for all students who wish to support and enhance their learning.   Couldn't ask for more.

Subject: Learning Center question

The University Tutorial Center at NC State University is currently investigating moving to a learning center housed in the main library. Our administration is interested to know what other institutions have a learning center, particularly ones housed in libraries.  We appreciate knowing how the model is working for others.

Thanks,
Barbie Windom
