Established through the generosity of Fairfield alumni Scott and Susan Fredrickson ’82, the Fredrickson Family Innovation Lab stands as a symbolic center for the College of Arts and Sciences, bridging its wide breadth of departments and academic programs. Its purpose is to provide students and faculty with a physical and digital gathering space for interdisciplinary research, instruction, and cross-pollination.
Equipped with mobile workstations, HDTV screens, specialized computer software, and two sizable seminar rooms, the state-of-the-art facility offers ample space for hosting interdisciplinary workshops and classes, highlighting faculty and student digital research, and facilitating the exploration of digital solutions to global issues whether qualitative, quantitative, scientific, creative, or at the intersection of diverse fields.
For students, the Innovation Lab delivers a kinetic zone of instruction, experimentation, and accomplishment. For faculty, it facilitates problem-solving partnerships and innovative pedagogical and research collaboration. For members of the community, it demonstrates the value of a Jesuit education in the digital age and extends an invitation to students and faculty within the Dolan School of Business, Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies, and the School of Engineering, to collaborate with the College on creative solutions that address today’s problems.
