Originally the idea of enriched student learning on the Shreveport campus began as a part of a Title III Grant initiative which was completed in 2014. NSU believed the services were so valuable that they vowed to continue developing the objectives of the grant and thus began construction of the Learning Center. The Learning Center was developed in a large room of the library that had previously housed printed journals; which are now available in digital format.
Since the inception of the learning center, over 200 students have utilized the services housed in the Learning Center.
