What We Do

  • How We Make a Difference

    The Learning Commons supports a diverse family and community of students, staff, and faculty working toward fostering academic excellence. We provide a modern learning and teaching experience, contribute to dynamic student learning and provide high impact learning opportunities through innovative ideas and actions that supplement and support lifelong learning goals. We impact student persistence and graduation rates, improved grades, confidence, self-esteem, and self-efficacy.

  • Impact & Partnerships

    Imagine a space where a student comes to get evaluated on academic strengths and goals, is engaged in a curriculum that supports those strengths, integrates additional math, science, business, and classical knowledge with writing in those areas and creates multimedia communications to better convey ideas. The TAMUG Learning Commons brings together in one environment honors and undergraduate research, library collections and services, multimedia services, and peer resources for students, faculty, and staff. The driving force behind an integration of these learning support services is a single point of services and resources for students.
