The AIS is reopened for Fall 2022! We are back in-person offering consultations, event and meeting space, and other drop-in supports and resources. 

The Academic Innovation Studio (AIS) brings together faculty, researchers, graduate student instructors, and service providers to inspire and support experimentation, connect people, and share ideas. Part of Research, Teaching, and Learning (RTL) in the Division of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, the AIS serves instructors and researchers across the entire campus community.

Come to the AIS to:

  • Connect to peers, particularly across disciplines
  • Connect to campus resources and services
  • Learn about and share novel and interesting ideas/approaches/tools
  • Engage with campus-wide initiatives

We also work to foster collaboration among academic support staff, and partner with service providers, centers, and academic programs from all over campus.
