CITE stands for "The Center for Innovation in Technology," a collaborative workspace housed in Carroll College's Corette Library dedicated to exploring new ways to use technology to improve the delivery of education for 21st century students. The CITE is also a place where students and professors can come to learn new techniques and new technologies to incorporate into their academic pursuits. With two full-time academic technology specialists and three members of the Tech Saint program on staff, students and professors are able to take advantage of experienced mentors when undertaking a project that requires an unfamiliar technology. This allows them to produce high-quality digital projects without losing focus on the discipline-specific learning those projects are meant to support.
