Norwich University will present three internationally-known innovators from the fields of creative design, technological design, and design for social good, for a Todd Lecture Series panel discussion at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 27, in Plumley Armory. This lecture will be streamed live. 

Also in Plumley Armory, a “Making Innovation Showcase” will feature a curated exhibition of student academic and creative research that is the culmination of a yearlong focus on innovation at 6:00 p.m.

The Todd Lecture Series panel discussion, “To Act As Well As To Think: Leadership, Innovation, and the Creative Impulse,” an evening with Michael Jager, Natalie Jeremijenko, and William Kamkwamba, with moderator Jonathan Speed, a 2014 graduate of Norwich’s Master of Arts in Military History, will immediately follow the showcase.

The Making Innovation Symposium is the culminating event of a series of experiential learning exercises focused on the themes of leadership and innovation. Throughout the year, six co-curricular NU IDEA Design Challenges engaged nearly 100 students to creatively solve real world problems with their peers. The innovation challenges further Norwich’s goal of creating a culture of innovation, entrepreneurship, and creative thinking on campus.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Directions to campus and parking information are available here.
