Lectures, special events and competitions, including the Do Good Challenge on Wednesday, April 10, sponsored by actress Fran Drescher, founder of the Cancer Schmancer Movement, will fill the calendar for the '30 Days.' It will all culminate with Maryland Day, our community showcase of our great university with over 400 events.
UMD also launched a new web portal for innovation and entrepreneurship at the university. Innovation.umd.edu will serve as a central site for the Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, academic programs, university resources, events and competitions, and innovation news. The site contains a complete list of all of the events that are a part of our '30 Days' celebration.
"The University of Maryland has a rich array of over 60 innovative and entrepreneurial programs, from all corners of campus," says Dean Chang, associate vice president for innovation and entrepreneurship. "The Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship was specifically created this semester to help grow those programs and launch new ones in this critical area. The '30 Days' celebration and new web portal are terrific showcases of the entrepreneurial culture here on campus."
