Welcome

Our Mission

The mission of the ASSETT Innovation Incubator is to improve the undergraduate experience by getting students out of their seats and into active learning.

Our Vision

We envision a diverse community of learners — comprised by students, faculty, and staff — who are engaged in purposeful, collaborative, creative, and impactful learning experiences.

Our Community Values

Experimentation: Calculated risk-taking leads to unexpected discovery that can generate new knowledge and new ways of doing.

Failure: Valuable insights are gained and exciting new directions taken when things “don’t work”.

Emergence: New ideas need time to develop — oftentimes unexpectedly through both undetectable evolution and surprising bursts .
