Located within the newly renovated Science & Engineering Library, the Digital Scholarship Innovation Studio (DSI) is a space for UC Santa Cruz students from all disciplines to create, experiment, explore, and bring their imaginations to life. The DSI provides a judgment-free learning zone with access to knowledgeable peers available for support at every step of the way.
The DSI prepares students for tomorrow’s workforce.
Employers are hungry for graduates who possess the latest skills in prototyping, design, and manufacturing. Through the DSI, students gain access to technology that allows them to explore worlds, expand knowledge, and consider their future without limitation, irrespective of their academic path.

The Digital Scholarship Innovation Studio provides students with free access to all its equipment. As the DSI grows and expands, UCSC is committed to continuing free and low-cost solutions. To ensure that all UC Santa Cruz students have access to technology for developing these in-demand skills, the Digital Scholarship Innovation Studio needs more funding.
