The goal of the Center for Innovation @ All Saints is to create spaces that compel students to develop skills and mindsets necessary to succeed in college and in life, such as problem-solving, adaptability, empathy, entrepreneurship and collaboration.

The Center for Innovation @ All Saints is composed of six key areas:
Fab Lab (Fabrication laboratory) is a 21st Century workshop offering access to a range of advanced fabrication tools and digital resources to inspire students to turn their ideas into new products and prototypes. The beauty of the Fab Lab is its ability to not only inspire students but to teach them the value of learning, creating and providing the resources to have positive impact beyond the walls of a classroom.
Design Studio - Students want to engage in — and contribute to — their community. Having the tools and space to design drives intrinsic motivation and reinforces for students what we already know — that they are a tremendous asset to the communities in which they live.
The Digi Studio (Digital Video / Audio Recording Studio) allows students to explore the power of the media and produce top quality sound and video work to share with the world.
Idea Lab (Blended Learning and Conference Hub) creates a space for Blended Learning to occur within a state-of-art Conference Hub with tools to make learning global and assessable for all students. The Idea Lab features a variety of areas to allow for collaborative learning. Outfitted with video conferencing for up to three sources will allow for distance learning connections across the globe.
E-Café (Entrepreneur Café) inspires an entrepreneurial mindset and gives a unique learning experience to foster passion and excitement for what it takes to start and run a business. The E-café is a full service beverage shop with bottled beverages, coffees, and smoothies run by students.
The VR room is equipped with a water-cooled computer optimized to run the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. The technology in the room was designed and built exclusively by All Saints students. The room will allow students to experiment and create innovations in the virtual and augmented reality realms. Students will be able to create and experience simulations for classes and design projects across the curriculum.
Innovation Across the Entire Campus
Innovation happens all over campus as well. Our Broadcast students produced this video explaining what innovation means to All Saints.
