Pacific University recently received a grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust for the Boxer Makerspace.
The Berglund Center at Pacific University is an innovation center and incubator where innovative thinking, entrepreneurship and multidisciplinary team work comes together to launch new products, services and ideas within a vibrant learning community. The Berglund Center is focused on serving every major and degree seeking student at Pacific University, from first semester freshman to doctoral students. The Berglund Center reports to the Provost and is part of the Academic Affairs unit on campus serving all five Colleges at Pacific University.
Pacific students have a new place to make their ideas take shape — the Boxer Makerspace. It’s an inviting new area on the second floor of the Tim & Cathy Tran Library where students can use 3D printers, a laser engraver, a vacuum formbox and other tools to create prototypes of their own design.
After a year of remodeling, refurbishing and re-imagining, Boxer Makerspace will open on the second floor of the Tran Library in September.
