Jefferson Community College, John W. Deans Collaborative Learning Center
Watertown, New York
The goal of the Collaborative Learning Center was to combine synergistic functions into a new model that will maximize opportunities for student, faculty and community collaboration, and define a new “front door” to the campus. This state-of-the-art model takes traditional library and media center functions and supplements them with a Learning and Success Center, a Career Planning and Placement Center, and a technology-rich collaborative classroom.
The design team worked closely with the college to capture the vision of this integrated library and technology hub. The design combines ease of access to essential services with spaces that encourage interaction among students, faculty and staff. Students have direct access to breakout rooms, flexible tutoring space, and study areas. The layout of the two-story plan combines open space for fluid interaction and defines adjacent space for intentional and natural interaction among all users. Spaces are filled with natural light and furnished with a variety of seating types that support a comfortable learning environment and promote collaboration.
