Pima Community College Facilities Specification for a Library/Student Center Prototype. Final [Report].
Paulien, Daniel K.; Thibodeau, Yvonne
This document is a description of a prototype Library/Student Center designed to serve approximately 10,000 students at a comprehensive campus. Prepared by the firm Paulien & Associates, Inc., of Denver, Colorado, this prototype will serve a design basis for facilities at all Pima Community College (PCC) campuses. The prototype will not be implemented exactly as described, but rather will be adapted for various-sized campuses. The Library/Student Center is designed to be a one-stop resource that provides student services, academic support, a student center and library services. Based on findings from the College Learning Services Project, this facility will provide more efficient delivery of services from formerly isolated administrative units. It will include extensive technological infrastructure designed to be flexible enough to meet future student needs. The space program divides the prototype into four elements: student services (12,000 square feet), library (23,000 square feet), academic support (17,500 square feet), and a student center (25,000 square feet). The various services and departments within each element are described, along with tables that outline space allotted to each service. Student services include offices such as admissions/registration, advising, a career/transfer center, cashier, and financial aid. Academic support includes computer resources, a learning center, testing offices and tutoring. The student center contains a bookstore, cafeteria, meeting rooms, lounge, and space for student organizations. (Contains 25 tables and 2 figures.) (RDG)
