Saint Marians rarely back down from a challenge. In true Saint Mary fashion, we’ve taken on a $300,000 Mabee Grant Challenge supporting the transformation of De Paul Library into the Archbishop James Keleher Learning Commons (a space centered on instructor-to-student engagement, peer-to-peer learning opportunities, student success, metaliteracy, community, and multiple teaching modes), and we need a team of supporters, like you, to help us reach our lofty goal.
Designed to meet visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles, the Learning Commons redesign will center on instructor-to-student engagement, peer-to-peer learning opportunities, student success, metaliteracy, community, and multiple teaching modes.
Along with a student-centric first floor, a renovation to the Learning Commons’ LeBeau Special Collections will allow Saint Mary to grow its already-impressive collections and preserve its artifacts using the highest standards for both our campus and local community to enjoy. The renovation will build out its research room and gallery space to help better foster student learning, facilitate community outreach opportunities, and curate scholarship through engaging experiences with primary sources found within the Bernard H. Hall Abraham Lincoln Collection and the Sir John and Mary Craig’s Scripture Collection.
The Mabee Foundation will match every dollar raised between now and July 2019 (up to $300,000).
DEADLINE: July 2019
