Academy for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (AIE)
AIE was launched by UMD President Wallace Loh in 2013 and charged with engaging all 35,000+ of our students in innovation & entrepreneurship to prepare them to tackle the world's toughest problems.
Skills our students gain -
Our students completely reimagine the landscape by developing deep empathy for potential stakeholders, reframing problems, and trying unexpected & game-changing solutions.
Who we are -
Operating directly out of the Office of the President and the Office of the Provost, our core team is multi-disciplinary, creative and has a “bias to yes” attitude. We collaborate with the Deans from every school and college as well as an extended team of I&E-related programs & departments across campus that are passionate about creating innovation opportunities for all students.
