Hege Library & Learning Technologies Makersuite: Mission & Vision

In furthering institutional values and academic principles, the Hege Library Makersuite mission is to provide and foster a collaborative, interdisciplinary experiential learning environment for the academic community at Guilford College.  The Makersuite operates as both a physical and virtual space to enhance the curriculum and academic experience via practical, hands-on exposure to both established and emerging technology, software, and skills.  

Our vision follows that of the Hege Library Academic Commons as a whole; to be a symbol of academic excellence and institutional distinctiveness in furthering innovation through collaboration.
