Life design

Inside the Imagine Center

Since 2018, the university has been quietly revolutionizing its approach to student career and life design. Now, the revolution has a headquarters. The Imagine Center for Integrative Learning and Life Design is home to seven student-serving offices and is the nerve center of the universitywide Division of Integrative Learning and Life Design. The Homewood campus building, which formerly housed the U.S. Lacrosse Hall of Fame, has been renovated and redesigned to reflect the university's forward-thinking approach to integrative and experiential learning, mentoring, and professional development.
