The University Innovation Fellows are a national community of students who work to
ensure that their peers gain the necessary attitudes, skills, and knowledge required
for them to compete in the economy of the future. To accomplish this, the Fellows
advocate for lasting institutional change and create opportunities for students to
engage in entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity, design thinking and venture creation
at their schools. Under the direction of the Institute of Design at Stanford University,
these student leaders work with their peers from colleges and universities across
the country to catalyze greater levels of innovation and venture activity on their
campuses. Learn more: http://universityinnovationfellows.org/
Utah Valley University was the first institution from the state of Utah chosen to
sponsor University Innovation Fellows on their campus. Approximately four UVU students
will be selected each year to attend intensive workshops at Google Headquarters and
Stanford University in Palo Alto and receive additional training through the program.
After training, Fellows pursue projects that will expose more students to creativity,
innovation, and entrepreneurship.
Utah Valley University proudly sponsors an Innovation Fellows group on its campus
due to the significant contributions of student Tanner Wheadon (Technology Management) working in cooperation with Dr. Anne Arendt (Technology Management) starting in 2014-2015. In 2016, we added five additional UVU fellows: Jason Carrick (Computer Science), Dallin Ott (Mechatronics), Brayden Cutler (Computer Science), Derek Latimer (Finance), and Mark Romero (Computer Science) and one faculty fellow: Dr. Armen Ilikchyan (Technology Management). The fellows for fall 2017 cohort are Brooke Schroeder (Psychology),
Erin Call (Environmental Science), Nicolas Tyler (Business Management), and Timothy
Smith (University Studies). The UVU faculty fellows for summer 2017 cohort are Dr. Cynthia Wong (University College) & Dr. Jacqueline Preston (University College).
