College Skills Center is now Cardinal Learning Commons!

The College Skills Center in Lee-Kildow Hall will be closed this summer as the center transforms figuratively and physically into the new Cardinal Learning Commons.

What does this mean? For students and faculty, tutoring will not be available for Summer Session. However, the changes that are planned for the new Cardinal Learning Commons will be ready for Fall Semester 2018 and embody a very student-centered approach to the services offered previously by the College Skills Center, with some new additions. The redesign of the Cardinal Learning Commons is aimed to develop creative collaborations between academic and student support programs to address academic and student support-related barriers to student success. The new CLC is helping to develop a comprehensive plan to consolidate developmental and remedial programs for purpose of utilizing best practices and uniform delivery. Additionally, the redesigned CLC model will implement the introduction of a first-year experience program for NIC students.

Construction this summer will transform the physical space in Lee-Kildow Hall to incorporate computer labs for Math-090 instruction and the addition of a new Math Education Center. An open house in the fall is planned to encourage all faculty and staff to see the new space and all that the Cardinal Learning Commons has to offer!
