Administered by the NSF-funded National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter, directed by Stanford University and VentureWell), the University Innovation Fellows program empowers students to cultivate campus ecosystems supporting innovation, entrepreneurship, and community engagement. Fellows across the U.S. collaborate with faculty, staff, and university / industry leaders to create makerspaces / incubators, develop design thinking workshops, and provide unique, community-centered experiential learning opportunities for their peers to graduate with skills to compete in a 21st century economy. This student-led panel will expose UEDA stakeholders to unique ways Fellows are engaging with university-based economic development and how university leaders can sponsor Fellows on campus.
