About FLEXspace

The FLEXspace initiative is a large collaborative effort that started in the State University System of New York and quickly spread. 

FLEXspace – The Flexible Learning Environments eXchange – is an innovative tool that supports a highly-engaged community of experts, decision makers, influencers, and practitioners from higher education, K-12, libraries, museums and industry committed to improve learning space planning, design and implementation.
