Advisory committee

The GCIEL advisory committee consists of faculty, students and staff at Grinnell College who are outside experts in their respective fields and who advise the lab on how immersive 3D, VR, and MR environments can complement teaching and scholarship in these fields. Members of the committee provide strategic vision for integrating these immersive environments into liberal arts curricula, advise on hardware and software purchases for the lab, advocate for the lab and its activity in the college community, and assist in exploring funding and grant opportunities for the lab.
