In 2012, the Faculty Commons was established as a space for community and collaboration.  A joint message from Fr. Timothy R. Lannon, S.J., President of the University, and Dr. Thomas F. Coffey, President of the University Faculty reads:

    Building community among faculty and providing a venue to encourage conversation and networking in support of a collaborative learning environment are just two of the goals for the Creighton Faculty Commons.  The Commons will be an area designed for faculty with a dining area called Irma's Café and an intimate gathering area for meetings and dialogue called The Landing. The Commons will be at the previous site of Irma's Bistro between Kiewit and Gallagher Residence Halls in lower Becker.
    The concept originated through discussions at Academic Council meetings over the course of the past year.  Consensus around creating a space to facilitate faculty connections and conversations prompted the formation of a work group led by Dr. Barb Harris.  Various models and best practices at other universities were explored. Thanks to a partnership among Academic Council, Student Life, Administration, Sodexo, and the Office of the President, space was designated and enhanced for the new Faculty Commons.  The intention is for faculty to use the space to gather for conversation, networking, and collaboration.  There will be an opportunity to reserve a section of the Faculty Commons, The Landing, for department and small meetings.  Otherwise, use of the space is informal.

LOCATION:  Faculty Commons is located in Lower Becker Hall at the west end of Creighton's central mall. Click here for a campus map specifying the location.
