Mission Statement

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:

  1. Seek grants and develop partnerships with local K-12 schools to support research in utilizing gaming and media to enhance learning.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Work with local, state, and national agencies to support public policy advocacy via gaming and media development.
