  1. and NOW! Laurie Eagleson Lori Critz MPMLA – May 17, 2002

  2. What is the ILC? • The Arizona Board of Regents granted Project Initiation approval for the Integrated Learning Center (ILC) on September 8, 1994. • Part of a planning effort devoted to improving undergraduate education, including • increasing first-year student persistence rates • improving graduation rates • increasing first-year student exposure to ranked faculty • alleviating the current classroom space shortfall • providing state-of-the-art classrooms in a more cost-efficient manner than renovating older facilities

  3. Facilities include: • 119,000 sq. foot new construction including open areas • 4 multimedia lecture halls • 4 technology kaleidoscope classrooms • 6 discussion classrooms • Information Commons with connection to Main Library, including 50-computer classroom • Instructional support for faculty • Office space for First Year Center and course coordinators • Open center courtyard • Cost: $26 million (paid with academic revenue bonds)

  4. Why an ILC? • To provide an academic/intellectual "home base" for freshman students. Development of such a campus home base has been found to support student retention. • A “one-stop shop” for freshman gen-ed (Natural Sciences, Arts and Humanities, Individuals and Societies) and foundations classes, academic advising & tutoring, and research/technology assistance for class assignments

  5. Who is the ILC “staff”? • Freshman Year Center (Academic advising and tutoring) • University Teaching Center (Instructional technology) • Center for Computing and Information Technology (network and technical support for classrooms) • Library (research assistance, software assistance and network/technical support for Information Commons)

  6. Where is the ILC? • Proposal called for central location close to Student Union and Library • University Mall was only central space available; however, due to the great popularity of this grassy area for games, sunbathing and other important Arizona student activities , it was decided to build this new facility……………

  7. UNDER the Mall! (Where the sun don’t shine!) A A

  8. Fun Facts • Average depth is 23 feet below ground level • 100,000 cubic yards of soil was removed (This took 2 months!) • 12,000 cubic yards of concrete was poured • Palm trees were relocated to west end of mall, then replanted after construction was completed

  9. Ground was broken on September 8, 1999, exactly 5 years after being approved by ABOR

  10. Students also broke ground on “their” new facility

  11. The “hole” was dug and a “bottoming out” ceremony was held November 5, 1999.
