A sensory room will be open to explore from October 3 –7 and November 14 – 18. Developed from a Student Senate proposal, the sensory room is a place for library users to explore all five senses with goals to:
Create a welcoming and immersive environment for students to experience sensory learning;
Promote a space where students can decompress before, after, or between study sessions;
Identify different learning needs of the student body;
Provide a comforting space where de-escalation and self-regulation are strengthened;
Introduce a failure-free environment where the mind can explore and relax based on activities;
Encourage UNMC to continue to promote a culture where learners of all abilities are celebrated.
Located in the library, WH 6032, the room is open to students and the campus community.
