The Graw Innovation Center (GIC) is a space for exploration where we challenge our students and faculty to think outside the box. They create solutions to real problems while learning leadership, empathy and perseverance. Innovative and entrepreneurial ideas don't just happen, they require work and persistence. That work happens here.
In designing for others, empathy emerges through the listening process. Rather than make assumptions about the root of a problem, we ask questions and the problem or need is flushed out. Then we begin to brainstorm and imagine what is possible.
