The Learning Commons faculty and staff present our new vision, mission, and goals as the embodiment of our renewed commitment to support Leeward Community College in achieving its mission and objectives.
The Leeward Community College Learning Commons provides an inclusive, learner-centered environment fostering discovery, innovation, student achievement, and well-being. We recognize our physical location to be on ancestral land in Hawaiʻi, at Puʻuloa and Waiʻanae. Therefore, we acknowledge our responsibility to uplift and center the cultural traditions and scholarly contributions of Kanaka Maoli, past and present, to enrich the education and vitality of current and future generations of students.
The Learning Commons, which includes library and tutoring services, works in collaboration with the campus community to provide resources, tools, services, and spaces supporting teaching, learning, and student success.
The Learning Commons provides safe, accessible, and inclusive spaces for all students to enhance their academic well-being and success.
The Learning Commons provides quality resources that support students’ classroom experiences including print and online resources, computers and equipment, research and library instruction, and peer tutoring services.
The Learning Commons collaborates with the campus community to support teaching and learning through partnerships, special projects, workshops, and events.
The Learning Commons provides superior customer value through timely, consistent, and responsive services to the campus community.
As part of the college's accreditation process, the Library assesses its impact on student learning in these areas:
The student will evaluate information and its sources critically
Students will use appropriate information ethically to complete course assignments
