Students, faculty, staff, and visitors can now experience new high-tech, collaborative learning and teaching spaces in the Lindquist Center, thanks to a major renovation which spanned several years.

Phase 2 of a major Lindquist Center renovation was completed in Fall 2021, bringing the number of new high-tech collaborative classrooms and multi-purpose spaces to seven between North and South Lindquist. Phase 1 was completed in November of 2020, ahead of schedule.

The new Al Hieronymus Student Learning Center was unveiled in a fall 2021 celebration with members of the Hieronymus family and Iowa Measurement Research Foundation’s Board, which provided generous funding for the center.

Phase 2 also includes a new, integrated Student Services and Dean’s suite, and Devlin Family Café as well as many informal spaces for collaborating and connecting in North Lindquist. The café is named in honor of the Devlin family, who has generously supported the UI REACH program and whose family member is a UI REACH student.

The renovation creates an enhanced learning and teaching environment, a stronger sense of community, and a much more student-centered experience.

“We are thrilled to complete the renovation, which will impact student and faculty success for years to come,” says Dean Dan Clay. “We welcome everyone to come visit our newly renovated spaces and to experience the enhanced teaching and learning environment.”
