GSU President Mark Becker discusses the CURVE ribbon cutting ceremony and some of the innovative student and faculty projects happening here is his latest column for Georgia State University Magazine (Winter 2014).
The technology is cool, no doubt, but it’s how it is applied that is truly transformative. With it, professors are taking students on big-screen adventures to Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula to scout Mayan ruins. They’re mapping systems in the human body, showing molecules and cells in new and different ways.
A big thanks to President Becker for participating in the CURVE opening ceremony earlier this semester and for acknowledging the transformative nature of CURVE’s cutting-edge technology as we work to transform research, learning, and the role of the academic library in the 21st century.
