From Our Community

“Academic institutions are at the forefront of producing new knowledge and understanding about the world in which we live. These insights, inventions and innovations can have a profound and positive impact on society. However, for that to happen, there must be a commitment and structure in place to support the translation of scholarly research and creativity beyond campus borders.”
Our virtual Distinguished Speaker Series event is almost here! Join us tomorrow, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m., for an illuminating discussion with Rodney D. Priestley, first vice dean for innovation at Princeton University, who will share research and insight into how academic innovation can reach beyond campus borders.
