Building a 21st Century Learning Environment

We are focused on creating a 21st century environment for learning and discovery. We know that learning environments improve learning outcomes. That is why we are not only rethinking how we prepare our future leaders, we are rethinking the walls around them — starting with the cornerstone of our school: Beard Hall.

UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy

    A revolution is under way in higher education.

    Technology is changing the way we teach and learn and our Educational Renaissance is leading the way. We are creating new instructional methods, classroom techniques and virtual training platforms to help graduates better serve patients, excel in their research and lead in the arenas where healthcare decisions are made.

    By changing the way faculty members and students interact, we have deepened the impact of classroom time as we develop critical thinkers, problem solvers and leaders. Beard Hall was ideal for the needs of students and faculty when it opened in 1960, but it has been left behind by profound changes in instruction and inquiry. Reinvigorating Beard Hall will continue to enhance the student learning experience by providing collaborative spaces, interactive classrooms and modern labs.
