DILAC Lab Featured as Major 2016-2017 Project for Ivan Allen College

At today's annual meeting of faculty and staff in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, Dean Jackie Royster featured the new Digital Integrative Liberal Arts Center as the college's central initiative for this year. The Center is located in LMC's remodeled/renovated Skiles 318 and is under the direction of my two LMC colleagues, Carl DiSalvo and Lauren Klein. The Center is supported by a $1 Millon Mellon Foundation Grant.
