The fifth annual DePaul Innovation Day: Innovation for Social Good​ is planned for Friday, Jan. 26, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the Student Center on the Lincoln Park Campus. All full- and part-time faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to RSVP for this year’s in-person event.

This year’s annual celebration focuses on two of the most important trends facing our society: innovation and social good, while exploring new ideas and approaches to solve existing problems. Both trends are important, but their intersection is likely the most powerful dynamic for change. The intersection of these two trends of innovation and social good is where DePaul can play a transformative role. 

We are a Vincentian university whose faculty, staff, and students can bring new ideas to the world around us. Innovation Day 2024 will bring the DePaul community together to connect, collaborate, and create innovative strategies addressing important issues centered on poverty, environmental sustainability, and artificial intelligence. Please join us for an inspirational day featuring keynote presentations, panel discussions, the Innovation Showcase, and opportunities to engage with our colleagues.

Back by popular demand the Innovation Showcase is an opportunity to explore products, services, and solutions addressing important issues centered on poverty, sustainability, and social computing developed by DePaul faculty, staff, and students.  The Planning Committee is seeking presenters who will demonstrate how their creative innovations are meeting industry and societal needs during Innovation Day. This will be done in an open forum in which attendees can visit a variety of innovation “booths.” If you are interested in showcasing your work, please complete the brief application here no later than Nov. 15, 2023. 

The event will be hosted at the Lincoln Park DePaul Student Center, Room 120A&B, located at 2250 N. Sheffield Ave. 
This event is sponsored and organized by the Office of the Provost, the Office of Research Services, and the Office of University Events. ​
