Why Makerspaces at DePaul (or any other institution)?

A while back I put this report together with a colleague from DePaul, Betty Shanahan. It outlines why makerspaces are important for DePaul, but more broadly, could be used as a starting point for discussing why makerspaces are important at any academic institution. The survey data that we collected (and that’s referenced in the report) is, in part, informed by some survey best practices that I learned at the Making Makerspaces certification course run by HEMI. If you’re in higher ed, and you’re trying to find a way to get your colleagues on board with developing a makerspace, I hope you find this useful!
