The Creative Research CenterThe Creative Research Center is part of the English Department at NMSU.

It operates as a media and technology/critical making lab, supporting and encouraging creative and research activity for faculty, instructors, and students in the Department, as well as hosting frequent workshops on the use of media, technology, and maker spaces in research, creative work, pedagogy, and activities that blur those distinctions. Additionally, the Center produces a wide variety of print, web, and other design materials for Department events, as well as those from other areas in the NMSU community.Anthony Stagliano575-646-2468staglian@nmsu.eduThe Creative Research Center
