How is your library part of the campus conversation regarding student success? This panel will look at how three different institutions have been implementing services and spaces for student support and learning –- across the campus and within the library. American University has looked broadly at this topic through their RiSE (Reinventing the Student Experience) initiative to address the needs of their dramatically changing student body and to foster inclusion, retention, and academic success. Barnard College and Hunter College have designed new libraries to transform opportunities to support student success and offer expanded modes of research and learning.
Our panel will address this topic on three different scales: through learning about a campus-wide initiative to reinvent services supporting student success; through understanding how a new library was able to envision expanded models for student work and research – including the impact of those decisions on staffing and service models in the library; and as part of extensive renovations that bring important, relevant student support spaces to the library.
