PRIORITY: LIBRARY

To-date, generous donors have given nearly $20 million for the $45 million renovation of the college’s Charles L. Tutt Library.


WHY IT MATTERS

The reimagined library anticipates the rhythm of the Block Plan by students them with tools, expert instruction, and access to information in a flexible, inviting space. Seating increased from 495 to 1,100 seats, and some areas of the library are open 24 hours to accommodate peak usage times on the Block Plan. Laboratories for geographic information systems (GIS) and data visualization, a dedicated area for technology support, and space for exploring virtual caves make an array of technology and instruction accessible.

The renovation created the largest carbon-neutral, net-zero energy academic library in the United States. The National Association of College and University Business Officers recently recognized Tutt Library’s renovation with their 2017 innovation award.
