University Innovation Fellows
October 29, 2015
Three CEAT students named University Innovation Fellows
The University Innovation Fellows program empowers students to become agents of change at their schools. The Fellows are a national 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 country 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.
About the Fellows
The program has trained 607 Fellows at 143 schools. They range from undergraduates to PhD students and engineering majors to architecture majors. All of them demonstrate a passion for innovation, creativity and the entrepreneurial mindset as well as a drive to make a lasting impact at their schools.
Some Fellows work independently on their campuses and collaborate with their faculty and peers, while others work in a team of up to five Fellows at a campus called a “Leadership Circle.”
2015-2016 Oklahoma State Fellows
Training & Support
University Innovation Fellows program leaders train candidate Fellows during an intensive 6- week period to conduct in-depth analyses of their campus ecosystems and provide them with tools and resources. Read more in depth about our online training on our apply page.
After training, the Fellows receive year-round mentorship, connect with one another digitally, and attend national conferences and events. This national network of like-minded students helps our Fellows learn from one another and create multi-institution collaborations.
Attention Oklahoma State students and faculty. If you have any interest or questions about the University Innovation fellows please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 405-744-7552.
