Get Involved

Spring Hackathon

When: Thursday, February 21, 5-9 p.m.

Where: Loyola University Evergreen Campus, Lange Innovation Lounge

Students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to participate in a facilitated exercise in user-centered design. The focus will be on co-creating alongside our community partner, Rebuilding Together, to develop a "hack" that addresses a social problem in Baltimore. 

Join us for pizza and icebreakers from 5-6 p.m.; the Hack will start promptly at 6 p.m.  The event is free and open to the public.  Registration is required and participation is limited.

Student Steering Committee

All students are eligible to apply to be considered for a position on the CI&E Steering Committee. The committee meets for an hour 1-2 times/month to provide input and feedback on the direction of the Center. In keeping with the student-led approach of the Center, each member is also responsible for taking the lead on developing and executing a Center activity.

Pitch your idea at Building a Better World Through Business

Loyola presents "Building a Better World Through Business," an annual series of events designed to celebrate the good that business does for society as it works to transform the world through sustainable economic and social development. Undergraduate and graduate students from all schools and disciplines are invited to submit proposals for the annual poster and pitch competition. Students participating in the pitch competition are encouraged to attend two workshops to receive training and guidance from faculty and professionals as to how to come up with an idea, how to prepare a poster that captures an idea and proposed solution, and how to successfully pitch/communicate your idea. For more information, visit the Building a Better World through Business website.
