Learning opportunities for transformation


Learning Opportunities for Transformation (LOFT) is the campus hub for professional development activities. Although the entire campus is used for a variety of professional development activities, the LOFT provides a space specifically designated for employee training and development on a daily basis. It includes small and large group training spaces, soft-seating, collaborative work stations, computer stations and quite rooms.

The furniture in the LOFT is designed to be flexible and transformative to meet the different needs of the campus.
