Recent studies and employer surveys have pointed to a deficiency in creativity and innovation skills in graduates of both two- and four-year colleges and universities.

Innovation is a critical element of growth at all levels. An additional aspect of the exhibition is the annual spring ciLive! (Celebrate! Innovation Live). During this week, DMACC West classes are suspended and students are immersed in a variety of interactive subjects surrounding the topics of creativity and innovation.
