Reimagining how we teach, learn and create: The Innovation Lab is where undergraduate thought leaders from multiple disciplines — creatives and budding engineers, scientists and business specialists — collaborate and develop comprehensive solutions for the economy’s greatest challenges, and where faculty discover ways to foster innovative and disruptive thinking. Twenty-five students from across the University make up the first cohort of the Innovation Program, which the students participate in from sophomore through senior year.

Thank you, Shana E. Lyons ’95 and John T. Lyons ’94 for providing scholarship support for an Innovation Program student!
