...and Beyond. A look at the future

It's still in the development stage, but the Noel Studio for Academic Creativity at Eastern Kentucky U. takes the information commons concept another step up the evolutionary ladder.  

"The learning experience of Eastern Kentucky University students will be radically transformed by the Noel Studio for Academic Creativity.  The Studio embodies the standard EKU has set internally in its Quality Enhancement Program (QEP), a focused university-wide initiative to develop informed, critical and creative thinkers who communicate effectively. "

One of the more interesting elements is the organizational structure.  A "Research Coordinator" will join coordinators for written and oral communication, along with tutors, to provide services in the studio.  The coordinators report to the Studio Director, who reports to both the Dean of Libraries and the Dean of University of Programs.
