Online every Friday in academic session, the Student Innovation Center will feature “Flagship Fridays What IF— Innovators Forum,” an interviewer moderated, on-line conversation session with leaders representing a diverse scope and scale of innovation.   Our universities do an excellent job of incorporating technical, hands-on and experiential learning.  Yet these experiences rarely afford students that window of insight about those behavioral characteristics that drive successful and industry changing innovation.  In our What IF sessions, industry mavericks will share their personal stories of innovation as well as their perspective of how, where, when, and why innovation is such a critical driver of social and economic progress and sustainability.
