Help Us Form an IDeATe Events Committee + IDeATe Showcase at Meeting of the Minds

A number of students and faculty have recommended that IDeATe host some regular get-togethers that would strengthen our community. It's a fantastic idea and one that would strongly benefit from student input. IDeATe would like to assemble a team of students who, with the support of the staff, will propose, organize, and promote a small number of events throughout the academic year. If you are interested, please contact Kelly Delaney.

Meeting of the Minds banner 2018Meeting of the Minds is this Wednesday, May 9th!
