Innovation with Impact-Graduate Education - Carnegie Mellon University

Innovation with Impact – Graduate Interdisciplinary Exhibition 2015

Registration is open through March 19, 2015

Innovation with Impact, IWI, is an interdisciplinary poster/performance exhibition of graduate student research and projects from across the Pittsburgh campus. All Carnegie Mellon community members, faculty, students, and staff are invited to attend.

What is it? 

  • The only exhibition for graduate students from all 7 colleges to share their work with each other and the campus community.
  • A taste of the experiences and hard work that graduate students often only share at off-site locations, conferences, or within their own college/program.
  • An opportunity for recipients of the GSA/Provost Conference Funding or GSA/Provost Graduate Small Research Grants, GuSH, to showcase how they have used the funds from these two sources.

   
When is it?
The 2015 Innovation with Impact will be held on Thursday, April 9th, 2015 as part of the annual Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week Celebration of Research, Projects, Teaching and Service.
