Opportunity for the Innovator Community Expansion Initiative
The Innovator Community Expansion Initiative (ICEI) seeks to grow and diversify the innovator community. Programming focuses on building the innovator pipeline and providing our diverse and distinguished faculty the resources (educational programs and development opportunities) they need to succeed.
