About C+I

Creativity + Innovation (C+I) is a University-level transdisciplinary initiative and a community of faculty and students whose vision and mission are uniquely focused on the curricular innovation. In collaboration with our University and external partners, we explore novel approaches to delivering transdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate curriculum. By doing so, we empower students to engage in experiential learning curricular opportunities that match and complement the unique character and impact of the transdisciplinary research conducted within the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT), the home of C+I.

From funding, outreach, and engagement, to internship, research, and employment, C+I proudly offers a broad array of interdisciplinary opportunities designed to leverage and complement the C+I curricular experiences. These opportunities are open to all Virginia Tech students. To subscribe to the student opportunities mailing list, please send us a subscribe request, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. For student questions pertaining to the curriculum and advising, please do not hesitate to email us.
