The Institute for Innovation and Global Engagement (IIGE) promotes a globally engaged campus and innovative solutions to our world’s most pressing challenges. Through local and global partnerships, it facilitates collaborative and interdisciplinary projects that have high impact for our community.
The IIGE Global Engagement Conference is open to graduates and undergraduates at UW Tacoma and area institutions and aims to bring together solution-oriented projects and papers on global issues that connect us all. We welcome submissions and especially intersectional critiques that engage with one or more of our globally focused conference themes (see below). This year’s conference particularly welcomes submissions that offer innovation and inspiration in an Era of COVID-19.
Conference themes include:
Global Innovation & Design:
COVID-19: How does design thinking help us innovate through community challenges?
Climate & Environment:
Deferred or Stalled: Actions on Climate Affected by Covid-19
