Dear MUIH Community:

As we begin the spring 2019 trimester, I am writing to let you know about some on-campus changes designed to benefit students and enhance your learning experiences.

Library and Quiet Room

In response to student feedback we’ve received in recent months, we are pleased to share with you that reconfiguration of the Library and Quiet Room spaces has been completed, and is ready for use. The Library’s primary physical space has been converted into an open collaborative commons area expanding the number of individual and group study spaces available to students. The collaborative commons is available for students’ use when the building is open considerably expanding students’ access when the Library is not staffed. In addition, the Quiet Room has been moved to a designated quiet area within the commons which may be used for quiet study, meditation, and prayer.

Chinese Herbal Medicine Inventory

MUIH has furthered its commitment to enhancing the Chinese herbal medicine program (CHP) by investing in new space for the program. The entire Chinese herb inventory has been consolidated and moved into a new and larger space. The previous Quiet Room has been converted for this purpose and directly connects to Classroom 2 which is used for CHP classes. Kerri Westhauser, Instructor and Director of the Chinese Herbal Medicine program, says “these changes will enhance students’ experience by providing a more integrated space for hands on learning”.

Best wishes for a successful spring trimester!
