Drexel Student Learning Priorities And Collaborative Partnerships Are The Focus Of A New Environment Within W. W. Hagerty Library

Faculty and staff from across campus work collaboratively to support student achievement of Drexel's Student Learning Priorities [DSLP] in a new learning environment in the lower level of W. W. Hagerty Library. The space, room L25, opened on Thursday, November 15th, to provide a place for members of the DSLP Collaborative Partnerships group to work together to provide programming and support for student learning.

Already, the Drexel Writing Center [DWC], the English Language Center [ELC] and the Libraries have partnered on a pilot program, providing enhanced tutoring and support for international students. Students who take advantage of this opportunity receive focused writing, language and research guidance.

The room is designed for flexible use with mobile tables and chairs, a whiteboard and projector, and access to the Internet and a conference phone. Several small group study rooms are also available nearby for breakout activities.

The DSLP Collaborative Partnership group came together under the leadership of dean of libraries Danuta A. Nitecki in response to a proposition that a dedicated place to converge will foster collaborations across units and will strengthen support of learning. The group quickly identified a common interest to coach students in mastering DSLP competencies. Starting with a handful of experiments, the group has grown to over 20 members who meet monthly and as ideas for collaboration call for further discussion.

This initiative supports of the Libraries’ strategic direction to strengthen connections by establishing a focal place for students to master and experience application of multiple literacies and information technologies, while seeking to enhance the collaborative efforts of programs across campus that are engaged in helping them do so.

Faculty or staff interested in joining the partnership and exploring collaborative use of the room are encouraged to contact Ann Yurcaba, Director, Library Administrative Services, at or 215-895-2750.
