In Fall 2014, CAEN and U-M Libraries partnered to transform a portion of the Duderstadt Center second floor atrium/southwest corner into a collaborative and social hub for students. The goal of the project was to provide areas for group collaboration, computing, and study. Currently there are nine collaborative areas that will accommodate group sizes up to six, and two larger collaborative areas that will accommodate group sizes up to ten. Each area is equipped with a 55″ LCD monitor and a computer running the CAEN Lab Software Environment. An HDMI/VGA input is also available to display from personal devices. New chairs, soft lounge pieces, tables, and movable wall structures were also installed. These areas were designed with some visual privacy while still maintaining an open and flexible environment. Currently these areas are available on a first come, first served basis. Future plans include the installation of some high end visualization group workstations and a reservation system for the collaboration areas.
