University Innovation Fellows program empowers students to become
agents of change at their schools. The Fellows are a global community of
students leading a movement to ensure that all students gain the
necessary attitudes, skills and knowledge required to compete in the
economy of the future. These student leaders from schools around the
world create new opportunities that help their peers develop an
entrepreneurial mindset, build creative confidence, seize opportunities,
define problems and address global challenges.
Fellows are creating student innovation spaces, founding
entrepreneurship organizations, hosting experiential events, and working
with faculty and administrators to develop courses. They serve as
advocates for lasting institutional change with academic leaders and
represent their schools at national events.
The University Innovation Fellows is a program of Stanford University’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school). The program was created as part of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter), a five-year National Science Foundation grant.
