Nebraska Methodist College Awarded $65,000 New Active Learning Classroom Grant by Steelcase Education

Published: April 5, 2017

Nebraska Methodist College (NMC), an affiliate of Methodist Health System, has been selected to receive the installation of an active learning classroom through the Active Learning Center (ALC) program, a grant initiative in its third year founded by Steelcase Education. The grant program supports teachers and students by creating an environment that encourages engagement, collaboration and creativity.

“Nebraska Methodist College was chosen because of a demonstrated commitment to active learning,” said Craig Wilson, director of market development for Steelcase Education.  “Research shows that space impacts behavior, and these classrooms will help a new group of instructors and students explore the learning possibilities an interactive space can bring.”

In addition to a new classroom valued at $65,000, Nebraska Methodist College will receive training from Steelcase on the uses of the modern movable furniture in the new space and have the opportunity to share insights and best practices with other awarded schools. Over the two-year program, Steelcase Education and Nebraska Methodist College will partner together to conduct assessments and research on the impact of the newly designed space.
