Cardinal Creation Center

The Cardinal Creation Center at the Norwood Cole Library is a space where current students can gather to create materials to support their teaching and learning.

The higher education information technology association (Educause), defines these spaces, also known as “makerspaces” as “zones of self-directed learning, providing a physical laboratory for inquiry-based learning and validating the drive for discovery that defines the researcher and the scholar.”
