Center for Innovation in Higher Education

Through our team of interdisciplinary researchers, the Center for Innovation in Higher Education works to create change, spread knowledge and improve educational practices for students, faculty and the community. Through university-community partnerships, public intellects and community discourse, our goal is to bring democracy and education closer together for freedom and equality. 

The Center for Innovation in Higher Education supports interdisciplinary projects that are designed to advance public intelligence on trending issues in higher education through innovation, collaboration and education.


The Center serves as a catalyst for leading change while providing resources for emerging ideas in higher education. The interdisciplinary nature of the Center lends itself to utilize a multi-faceted, culturally and historically sensitive approach to today's educational challenges.


The Center was conceptualized, built and staffed to focus on creating a collaborative environment for our community of stakeholders to perform community-based research. It is through these relationships that creative thinking and analysis leads to innovative solutions.


Our customized workshops, events and learning exchanges help individuals and organizations of all sizes deepen their knowledge and expertise to maximize the impact of their work and realize the unfulfilled promise of democracy, freedom and equality.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
