Learning Commons


William Jessup University offers a Learning Commons, a hub of learning partnerships committed to promoting effective learning within the classroom walls and beyond. More than that, it’s a philosophy where students are challenged to grow as independent learners through tutoring, technology, mentoring relationships, workshops, and other resources that offer the life skills needed for them to flourish in both their professional and personal lives.

Located on the 1st floor of the Library, the Learning Commons provides collaborative spaces and support from four main learning resources: Writing Center, Career & Life Planning, Disability Support Services, and Freshman/Transfer Academy. For more info, visit each page under the Menu or visit the Learning Commons front desk.
