The DAHC invites proposals from faculty-led research groups interested in meeting, conducting research, and teaching in the Commons, and in particular in making creative use of space. For example, these may take the form of makerspaces, hackerspaces, digital recording and editing kiosks or open labs. The space may be used for research projects, classes and class projects, or as a site for conferences and other events.
