After conducting research on the resources available on our campus, we came up with four strategic priorities. These are addressed in the various initiatives below.

  1. Strategic Priority 1: Creating valuable mentorship opportunities.
  2. Strategic Priority 2: Promoting cross-disciplinary networks among students, faculty, and staff.
  3. Strategic Priority 3: Providing students the opportunity to see how and why innovation and entrepreneurship are important in their fields.
