Guiding Principles


We extend access to technology, expertise, space, and programming by lowering barriers to entry.


We foster community through events and partnerships to inspire and drive innovative teaching and research with XR.


We empower students by making them collaborators and researchers who help staff our space and develop and run our programming.


We value collaboration across the humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields because XR requires cross-disciplinary expertise.


We believe in continual learning and encourage everyone to experiment without agenda or fear of failure.
