Overview

Innovative spaces bring together great minds to explore new connections and intersections between disciplines and capitalize on synergies created through that discovery. It is critical to provide exceptional faculty and talented students with environments that are designed to facilitate efforts to collaborate, push boundaries, drive innovation and pursue educational excellence.

Opportunities for Investment

  • Makerspaces Resources are needed to expand the number of flexible, collaborative work spaces on campus for creating, learning, exploring and utilizing high-tech tools.
  • Institutes and Centers To capitalize on emerging synergies across disciplines, enhance coordination of interdisciplinary efforts and bring diverse perspectives together to collaborate, W&M aims to secure funding for new virtual and physical spaces for institutes and centers throughout campus.
  • Entrepreneurship Hub This university hub will be supported by the existing Alan B. Miller Entrepreneurship Center at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business and will offer students programming, co-working space, makerspaceaccess, networking opportunities, mentorship and additional support as they pursue not just business start-ups, but entrepreneurial projects and ways of thinking across disciplines.
