DURANT, Okla. – The Sharon L. Morrison Collaborative Center was dedicated recently in the Henry G. Bennett Memorial Library at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

The room, located on the second floor of the library, is multifunctional, and has been utilized as a mobile classroom, tutoring and study hall, and a seminar room.

After 15 years of service, Morrison retired from Southeastern in 2016 as library director/associate professor. During her tenure, the library saw many improvements, including the addition of the Albert H. Brigance Curriculum and Assessment Center, the Native American Commons, a Learning Commons, the Evert Tigner Shakespearean  Collection,  and computer pods.

Among those joining Morrison at a recent dedication ceremony were Southeastern president Sean Burrage, vice president for academic affairs Dr. Bryon Clark,  dean  of graduate school/E-programming & academic support Dr. Tim Boatmun, library director Sandra Thomas, and other library staff members.
