Co-Works Research Lab is dedicated to interdisciplinary research and technology in art and design. Functioning as an incubator within the Office of the Associate Provost of Research & Strategic Partnerships (APRSP), Co-Works develops 3-5 interdisciplinary courses per semester and supports APRSP research initiatives. Co-Works also offers various co-curricular programs and prioritizes fostering an inclusive cross-departmental community where inquiry takes the form of making, teaching, and discourse on art and design’s intersections with racial, gender, disability and economic justice.
