Upcoming Events: Inspire > Educate > Engage

Our events inspire students, faculty, staff, and community members by exposing them to new ideas and to professionals that are making an impact, in an effort to educate and inspire them to become changemakers. We provide opportunities for hands-on, high-impact, experiential learning opportunities to engage our community members in social innovation, the process of developing and deploying effective solutions to challenging and often systemic social and environmental issues in support of social progress. Join us!
