Innovation Initiative

The Innovation Initiative logo

The Innovation Initiative encourages all graduate and undergraduate students from each of UC's colleges who share a common interest in innovation to become involved.

We are a student group exploring innovation outside of the classroom in which students can gain insightful knowledge, key experiences, and professional development. We explore innovation practices, eliminate ambiguity about innovation and facilitate student leadership in the area of innovation business.

The mission of the Innovation Initiative is to engage in educational events and networking engagements supported by direct and consistent interaction with professionals in innovation practice, to augment in-class innovation work with real-world exposure to innovation practice.


The Innovation Initiative is led by a talented and high-energy group of elected student leaders.
