Technology & Innovation

About

The Technology & Innovation community aims to cultivate students’ passions and pursuits around technology, innovation, and the entrepreneurial spirit. Here, you can turn your ambitious ideas into a bold new reality in an inspiring environment where residents mentor each other and bond over the principles of design. The Technology & Innovation community ignites creativity in its members and provides them with the tools, programs, and networks so they can bring their ideas to life.

All students, regardless of major, are invited to participate in this community as we examine how imagination and creativity can change the world.

The Technology & Innovation LLC is located in Olympic Hall.

GE Cluster for Freshmen

As a first-year student in this LLC, you may want to enroll in Cluster M71: Biotechnology and Society. Being part of the Cluster will allow you to bring your experiences from your LLC into the classroom with fellow floor residents. As advances in genetics and molecular biology continue, the next generation of leaders must be challenged to think about hard questions, including, “Who should benefit from this new science? How do we determine what modifications of human and other life forms are safe and appropriate?” And, most broadly, “How do advances in biotechnology affect our understanding of ourselves, our relationships with each other, and our role in the natural universe?” In the Biotechnology cluster, students explore this new science from biological, ethical and sociopolitical perspectives.
