Coming in 2025: Chandramohan Library & Learning Commons

Library Thumbnail

Within the walls of the remodeled Chandramohan Library & Learning Commons, students will write their own futures and celebrate what inspires them.

Funds raised will be invested in innovative, flexible endowed programs taught by dedicated faculty and staff to support the social, emotional, and intellectual well-being of every student. There are as many ways to learn as there are students, and our spaces need to reflect that reality—and proactively plan for future program needs.

Spaces for storytelling and speaking and sharing with others are needed because we need to understand our own perspectives and those of others. We can amplify those perspectives, even though they’re not our own, respect them, and give them avenues to be heard.”
