The Academic Commons at Penrose Library will be a teaching library that supports a new learning model based on connectivity and collaboration. Inside the Academic Commons' light-filled spaces, students will work together on projects, study and reflect quietly, tap into a vast array of data and knowledge, and seek help on everything from writing and math to research. The building also will serve as a one-stop resource for professors who want to incorporate the latest technology and pedagogy into their courses. As the campus hub for inquiry and engagement, the Academic Commons will be an essential destination for every professor and student at DU.
