Dean's Update: Building Communities

Danuta A. NiteckiOne of the strategic directions the Libraries is pursuing is to build and nurture communities.  We do so by exploring topics of shared interest among Drexel students, faculty, staff, as well as alumni, colleagues and friends beyond campus.  In this issue, you will read about recent efforts to bring together alumni and students interested in Drexel’s football program, triggered by an exhibit from the Archives, as well as seeking ways to encourage the preservation and celebration of the University’s memories and legacy of its athletic program.   In another venue, we were delighted to host an opportunity for students to explore the use of typography to express the purpose of the Library Learning Terrace and to share their creations with others who will view the selected designs that will be used to embellish the aesthetics of this learning environment.

Following suggestions expressed during last summer’s planning conference, the Libraries has begun to work with a few interested faculty to design a social setting where researchers and teachers can informally meet colleagues across academic disciplinary lines and be stimulated by interesting work undertaken at Drexel.   As one noted, we hope to address the interest to support Drexel’s “intellectual health.”   Look for announcements in coming issues of events to join this effort.

Moving forward, I hope to hear from you about other ways that the Libraries can help you feel part of Drexel’s community, particularly part of the many stimulating and robust conversations that unfold here.
