Creativity & Innovation District

Newman Library is a part of the Creativity and Innovation District along the eastern edge of campus where it intersects with downtown Blacksburg to fully support the complexities of innovation — from idea creation to commercialization. 

The Creativity and Innovation District guides thinking, repurposes assets, and creates physical space that leverages both creative and entrepreneurial activities. 

The district includes interdisciplinary faculty clusters, composed of existing lines and new hires in two focus areas: Creative Technologies and Experiences, and Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
