Northwest Nazarene University to break ground on $10 million facility
Northwest Nazarene University (NNU) has announced plans to break ground on new, $10 million Learning Commons at its campus in Idaho, US.
The proposed facility will be located on the corner of Dewey and Holly Streets in Nampa and will be the new academic hub of the campus. The new building will be a 56,635 square feet facility and will incorporate NNU’s current two-storied John E. Riley Library.
In addition to the library, the Learning Commons will also incorporate round-the-clock access, and individual and collaborative computer workstations. The facility will accommodate the University’s network data centre and academic services units, including Academic Advising and Testing, Academic Support Center, E-learning Services, Information Technology, Technology and Media Resources, and University Archives.
This centre will focus on preparing future teachers for the 21st century, training of current teachers (PK—college professors) and administrators, and equipping NNU faculty to bring technology into their teaching. The Albertson Foundation, which will be used to develop a Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning will be housed within the building.
The project will break ground on 8 March 2013. Construction of the new Learning Commons is scheduled for completion in late 2014.
