Charles E. Day Learning Resource Center (LRC)
The Charles E. Day Learning Resource Center (LRC), dedicated in 1995 with the completion of the Health Professions Center on USI’s campus, plays an important role in the education of students within the College of Nursing and Health Professions. The center is located on the second floor, conveniently near student classrooms, labs and faculty offices. Designed as a multi-use area for students and faculty, guidelines are followed and services provided supporting the most up-to-date instructional practices including Interprofessional Education. Access to desktop computers, printing, scanning and skills practice is available during the posted hours of operation.
As technology use continues to expand in health care, the Learning Resource Center serves as a starting point to support the ever-changing technology through partnership with the University’s support departments. Students and faculty can find assistance with computers, mobile devices, classroom technology, distance education, clinical practice labs and electronic health records at the LRC.
The most common services offered as part of the Learning Resource Center include:
- Peer-to-peer collaboration

The Day Learning Resource Center was initially furnished and equipped through the generosity of Lilybell M. Day in memory of her husband, Charles E. Day, 1907-1988.
