A 21st century education requires learning spaces that facilitate active engagement and movement within and around the classroom environment, as well as technology that supports the student-centered learning activities that faculty hope to promote within their classes.
The Center incorporates a model classroom of the future which includes a flexible layout, mobile technology and mobile work areas that allow for movement during the learning process and instructors to utilize the latest active learning teaching strategies. The principles and best practices acquired through the work in this model classroom will be used to influence the design of learning spaces throughout the campus.

This plan draws support from the College’s strategic plan strategies 1.3, 1.4, 2.4, 5.1, and 5.3 to dramatically enhance teaching and learning at the College. It responds to imperatives to revitalize and enrich the College’s learning environment, provide robust facilities for our students, and integrate planning, assessment, and budgeting processes. The process utilized in this planning process takes into account all scheduled learning spaces at the College.
