Academic Tech Commons to Celebrate Grand Opening
The celebration for the opening of the new Academic Tech Commons (ATC) in the Pius
XII Memorial Library will take place at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
The ceremony will include brief remarks, a blessing and post-ceremony refreshments.
ATC team members from Pius Library and ITS will be on hand to answer questions about
the different spaces and showcase the technologies available to SLU students, faculty
The ceremony, which will take place outside the south entrance to Pius Library, marks
the culmination of over two years of a collaborative design, planning, and construction
process. During this time, SLU worked closely with a team of architects from Ratio
and designers from ColorArt to engage the SLU community in the design and visioning
process that resulted in a new and innovative concept bringing together state-of-the-art
technology, flexible and creative spaces and a collaborative support model all into
one unique location.
The SLU community is invited to celebrate this innovative new resource. In case of
inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved to inside the ATC.
