The mission of the Center for Applied Gaming and Media Arts (CAGMA) at Kennesaw State University (KSU) is to bring together a diverse collection of teachers and researchers to create game and media applications for enhancing K-16 learning, corporate training, entertainment, and public policy advocacy. The center also provides a venue in which undergraduate and graduate game and media projects can develop into commercially viable products.
To achieve this mission, the following will be accomplished:
- Seek grants and develop partnerships with local K-12 schools to support research in utilizing gaming and media to enhance learning.
- Host events and tours to increase awareness of the utility of games and media and the activities occurring at KSU and CAGMA in this field.
- Serve as a conduit between KSU talent and business partners to realize commercial games and other media projects as extensions of student and faculty projects.
- Work with local, state, and national agencies to support public policy advocacy via gaming and media development.
