Pumerantz Learning Center

Welcome to the Pumerantz Learning Center

Welcome to the Pumerantz Learning Center (PLC), we are dedicated to providing an environment conducive to learning that provides newly remodeled study spaces and classrooms as well as open areas for collaboration. We offer many amenities including a Wellness Room, lounge, microwaves, refrigerator, coffee station and more.

I invite you to visit your new PLC/Library, experience our redesigned space, and view our beautiful moss wall inspired by our students and by WesternU’s Founding President, Dr. Philip Pumerantz who encouraged us to teach, to heal, together.
