The Innovation[X] Program is an opportunity to engage a broad array of students in a transformative learning project and explore translating research into actions that will have an impact on the community, nation, and the world.
Teams must consist of an interdisciplinary set of faculty members and a multidisciplinary team of 10-20 students, both undergraduate and graduate, from across the university.
