One Building, Unlimited Resources

Learning Commons

 

Our team of librarians, tutors, and academic professionals provide exceptional support in research, tutoring, and academic enrichment for our Blue Devil family. Our mission is to design academic programming and learning environments that cultivate a community of engaged learners. We enrich the academic community by providing exceptional resources and services.

Welcome Blues Devils!

The Learning Commons is a shared space where students are able to access and utilize technology, tutoring, and collaboration areas.  Study rooms, computers, academic resources, and professional employees are available to support the KCKCC academic community. The Dean of Academic Support & Assessment, Office of Assessment, Learning Services, KCKCC Library, and Online Education Services are all housed in the Learning Commons.
