Learning Commons

UNK Students working together in a group in the Learning Commons

 

The UNK Learning Commons is a collaboration of the Calvin T. Ryan Library and the Division of Student Affairs. The LC centralizes academic support services to foster student confidence and independence in a collaborative learning environment. 

A welcoming, student-centered space on the second floor of the library, the Learning Commons can help you improve your understanding of course material and develop stronger learning skills. Come by yourself or with friends to access course and writing assistance from fellow students.

These programs coordinate with Library services to promote student success:

  • Subject Tutoring: get assistance from fellow students in business, math, and science classes
    • Click here for the Fall 2018 Tutoring and Study Group Schedule
  • Language Support: improve your speaking proficiency in French, Japanese, and Spanish
  • Supplemental Instruction: enhance learning with student leaders working directly with your professor
  • Writing Center: improve your writing at any stage of the writing process
  • Success Coaching: access one-on-one academic support to help you study smarter
