We launched the Impact Exchange to provide centralized support and vision for outreach programs and foster a more holistic approach to community engagement. The Impact Exchange serves as a multidisciplinary hub for innovation and training, bringing together experts in communication, design, and the sciences. Students, faculty and staff engage at various points along a continuum designed to connect research and community.
