The Lecture Series on Innovation was established in 1995 through an endowment from Mr. Harold W. Genenheimer (Class of 1933) to support student programs that encourage creativity, innovation, and design. Through the lecture series and support of capstone design projects, students are exposed to processes that stimulate creativity and lead to inventions and patents.
