Advisory Committee

The CCC Maker Initiative is being guided by the expertise of an amazing group of advisors who are leaders in business, education and the maker movement

The committee members provide on-going advice to the implementation team, read proposals, offer opportunities to colleges through their networks, attend events, visit college makerspaces and provide other information and training to help colleges develop maker communities and prepare students for success in the 21st century economy.
