Media Studios Organization

Mission and Vision

Mission

The mission of the Northeastern University College of Arts, Media, and Design Media Studios Organization is to curate tools and technologies, provide expert technical guidance, develop and teach workshops, build digital literacies, test and develop improved workflows, and oversee spaces for experiential learning and collaboration, to support exploration and innovation in communication, design, and the arts.

Our resources, though highly interconnected, are organized into six broad categories:
New Technologies Labs
Maker-Spaces
Production Studios
A Media Center
Collaboration & Research Spaces
Computer Labs

We also provide additional resources including: Equipment Reservation, IT & AV Services, and Printing Support

The Media Studios Organization works in-step with evolving curricular and research needs, as driven by CAMD leadership and faculty, and promotes awareness of available resources and advances in technology, while centralizing and streamlining technical efforts across CAMD. As our media and technological resources grow, we continue building up our infrastructure and core tools, increasing investment in transformative technologies, developing a pipeline of technical R&D support within CAMD and key NEU partners, and increasing outreach and community engagement.

Vision

Drawing upon the Visions and 2025 Academic Plans of Northeastern and the College of Arts, Media, and Design, the Media Studios Organization will advance the integration of transformative technologies– driven by creative-computation tools and data-integration tools– in student and faculty work, supporting innovation in the arts, design, and communications.

Working with CAMD leadership, faculty, and partner organizations at NEU, we strive to help uphold CAMD’s key part of Northeastern’s position as a global leader in education, research, and innovation.
