Administration would like to create a research space to positively impact research (quality and quantity) conducted by graduate students in the College of Education. This space would include resources and services, as well as physical space for students to occupy. Resources and services would be available to both the campus and online student. The targeted user includes all graduate students, masters and doctoral, in any program in the College of Education. The College of Education Library seems a logical host for this space.
As you can see, the library has a large open room (one of two rooms) that could be utilized for this purpose. This space could be revitalized with new tools, services and technology to help achieve the stated goal.
