Partners

The Learning Commons is maintained through a collaborative effort between several offces, departments, and programs on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

The contributions and perspectives from these continue to provide a comprehensive and versatile view of the academic needs of the undergraduate community.

The Learning Commons builds on existing partnerships with individuals, departments, and centers on campus such as the Academic Learning Center, Information Technology Systems, and Interactive Digital Studies.
