Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons
In a time of rapid change, Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons continues to evolve

In a time of rapid change, Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons continues to evolve to meet the needs of 21st-century students, faculty, and staff.

As one example of the library’s commitment to remaining relevant and responsive, check out the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Action Plan which presents goals aimed at advancing equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism at the Lemieux Library. For the academic years 2021-22 and 2022-23, the Lemieux Library will focus many of the action items around racial equity in support of Seattle University Reigniting Our Strategic Directions 2022-2027, Goal Four Promote Inclusive Excellence. 

As a second example, consider the Learning Commons Partnership, which provides a unique environment in which our students succeed in their academic programs and develop the attitudes and skills for a lifetime of intellectual vigor and continuous learning. The library’s facilities, technologies, resources, and services: 

  • Engage the community in a full expression of teaching, learning, scholarship, and research.
  • Enrich the individual and collaborative intellectual processes and personal experiences of exploration and discovery as part of the search for truth. 
  • Enable in each student an active, lifelong ability to confront ideas, to master knowledge and to learn continuously.
A contribution to the General Library Fund provides unrestricted funding that enables the library to purchase materials in a variety of formats and respond to emerging needs of students and faculty.
