Inspiring innovation in UW-Parkside students and the community!
Venture Parkside is a talent development initiative driven by the belief that students must develop high-demand skills in the area of entrepreneurship, STEM, and innovation. In order to compete locally and globally students must:
- Be flexible
- Adapt in a changing business environment
- Think creatively
- Problem solve
We work with faculty, students, and businesses to create learning experiences based on real-world solution finding and calculated risk taking, in team-based settings. These experiences are cross-disciplinary, engaging students from across the university in a wide variety of majors. During the 2014-15 academic year 1002 students participated in Community-Based Learning projects. These engaged learning opportunities are a complement to their academic coursework.
