The Daytona Beach Campus Digital Studio is set for a facelift, thanks to a $66,012 grant from the Gladys Brooks Foundation.
Launched in 2015 as a pilot project, the Digital Studio — used as a tutoring space for students and faculty to hone software skills for a variety of multimedia projects — is currently housed in a small, portable unit on campus. Faculty plan to use the newfound funding to move into a larger, permanent space, upgrade software, add computers and buy new furniture, allowing the studio to trip the number of clients it serves.
“Our students are leaders in aerospace engineering and other STEM fields, and this studio will serve as a STEM Communication Center, essentially giving STEM students and faculty the opportunity to communicate their ideas in a more creative, effective way,” says Lori Mumpower, associate director of the university’s Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence (CTLE) and the studio’s interim director.
