Innovation Learning Center

Archive Space for the Sisters of St. Joseph

As a key component of Avila University’s Transformational Learning Environment Initiative, Avila will renovate more than 17,750 square feet of the existing library into a Learning Commons. A new Learning Commons will provide the technology, support and environment that will allow 21st century students to not only succeed, but excel – both as students and after graduation. The Learning Commons includes new technology and spaces designed to encourage small study groups, student collaboration and group projects, as well as quiet areas where students can study independently. It also includes the establishment of a space to house the archives of the U.S. Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph, Avila’s Women Religious Collections, and the official Avila University archives.
