Welcome to The Learning Commons: Are You Faculty?

The Learning Commons welcomes all learners, teaching them to be more effective and engaged scholars.

The Learning Commons provides four major services for faculty and staff:

We will meet with your students.

No matter what you are teaching, we are happy to meet with your students. We ask that you not require them to visit us or give them extra credit for doing so; our reasons for this policy are described in our faculty FAQ.


We will visit your class.

We are happy to visit your class to introduce ourselves and our services to your students. If you would like to arrange a visit or tour, please submit a request.


We assist faculty and staff with writing projects.

We can work with you on your own writing, including course assignments, grant proposals, and material for publication. We are happy to discuss your writing process and help you make efficient use of your writing time.


We consult with you to develop writing assignments for your class.

If you would like to discuss time management, study skills activities, creating effective writing assignments, using writing activities in class, or supporting your student writers, you are welcome to request a consultation with Learning Commons staff.
