The Academic Affairs Innovation and Creativity Suite (Ruane LL49) is intended to serve as a getaway or retreat space where groups of faculty, students, and staff can come together to think about, discuss, plan, and innovate in a collaborative environment.
It is expected that groups that utilize this suite will be focused on the germination of new ideas, development of proposals, and/or planning. The suite is not intended for groups to come together for meetings that aren’t specifically focused on the creation of new knowledge or planning innovations.
The Innovation and Creativity Suite is divided into two separate areas. The lounge area includes soft seating, two computer stations, a printer, and a white board. This area is intended to serve as a place where small groups come together to begin the process of generating new ideas and innovations, as well as to conduct preliminary research (as needed). The meeting area serves as a functional meeting space with six-person tables that may be brought together to create a group workspace.
