Dedication of the expanded Securian Mathematics Learning Lab, the newest addition to the library's Learning Commons, took place on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017.
The event began with a ribbon cutting and included tours of the commons and insight from the Bulldogs who learn in the new space. The Securian Learning Commons is on the second floor of the Kathryn A. Martin Library. See UMD News Release.
A $750,000 gift from the Securian Financial Group funded the expansion of the Mathematics Lab, doubling its capacity from 60 to 120 students. The donation was made in honor of Bob Senkler, a 1974 UMD graduate and Securian's recently retired CEO.
The Securian Mathematics Lab space, seen through glass walls from the Tutoring Center area, incorporates active learning technology to help math students progress at a pace that fits the individual.
Faculty and graduate students from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics teach in the space during the nine hours of class time scheduled per day. The lab space is made available for general student study during evenings and weekends when classes are not in session.
