Summer is a time for reflection, relaxation, and for us, a ton of events and activities! As we begin the Fall semester, we wanted to share a few highlights from our UIF team as well as provide opportunities for our community members to connect with us and with one another.
What we’ve been up to
We replicated the Silicon Valley Meetup in Bangalore, India, at our first Eastern Hemisphere Meetup with 55 Fellows from India and Australia.
We co-hosted UIF events with Fellows at Utah Valley, Twente, CO School of Mines and in Uruguay with Universidad de Montevideo and Universidad Católica del Uruguay.
In June and July, we completed five faculty workshops, teaching faculty from all over the world about design thinking and other student-centric teaching methods.
Fellows: are you on Facebook? If you’re not already member of our closed group for Fellows, please join us! It’s a great place to get help with your activities, get job and internship advice, learn about events, and even find Fellows to crash with during a road trip.
Need some in-person inspiration? Join us for a Regional Meetup at Michigan Tech, October 19-20! You’ll experience part of Tech’s Innovation Week, take on a design challenge, check out The Alley Makerspace (created by Fellows and faculty), and get outside to enjoy the colors of Fall. Regional Meetups are open to Fellows, candidates, faculty and friends. Register here.
