About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide tangible resources to rapidly create, grow and develop vibrant makerspaces as part of robust innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems on university campuses around the world, so that they create bridges between ideas in the classroom and real-world impact.

Our Vision

Our vision is to build the environment and resources through which academic and corporate members share best practices, and to facilitate synergistic relationships to attract, educate, support, employ and deploy the next generation of innovative and entrepreneurial makers.

Our Values

We believe these values are central to developing makerspaces that enable students to convert facts learned in the classroom into world-changing ideas:

• creating a culture that fosters safe making while minimizing barriers to access
• supporting student-centric programming
• fostering an understanding that making has a key role in skill development and the perspective needed to solve real problems and seed entrepreneurial activities
• engaging in ongoing assessment and improvement of makerspaces

Our Community

At its heart, making is about people — people learning together, people creating together, people collaborating together — in short, a community that supports its members to dream, invent, innovate and build. Makerspaces provide the environment and resources to allow people to flourish. The Make Impact Consortium is an extended community of like-minded individuals and institutions, dedicated to facilitating connections so that the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts.
