The Altshuler Learning Enhancement Center at Southern Methodist University will be moving to a larger facility within the next two years. We, the staff, are considering how we could/should effectively utilize the space in this new facility. We have 7 full time staff members and 1 part time staff member. Our general concerns include the organization of study areas, lounge space, computers, study carrels, desks, staff offices, and work stations for student workers. We serve a number of student populations, with special emphasis on work with engineering and pre-med students and with student-athletes. We would like our new space to provide "comfort zones" for a variety of student populations. We would very much appreciate hearing LRNASSTers' thoughts on these questions: 1) Describe the physical organization of your academic support center. Where are you physically located on campus? What student populations do you serve? 2) What do you like most about the layout of your facility? 3) What are some of the things you would like to change about the physical structure, organization, or environment of your academic support center? 4) If you were able to build a new facility, how would you organize the services (computers, study area, lounge, study carrels, desks, etc.) so that all students would feel welcomed? 5) What other question(s) should we be concerned about when re-organizing our facility? Without making our questions a total pain in the neck, we'd want to say, the more specific the better--staff, square feet, students served, which student populations, etc. If you are interested in receiving a summary of responses, let us know. We know you are busy with a thousand things already, and we want to thank you in advance for any help you can give us here.
