Members from the Department of Innovation, ITS, and Amazon will be available for questions and guidance.

University community members are encouraged to attend information sessions and submit proposals as individuals or teams. Proposals will be accepted through Monday, Dec. 17. The original proporal deadline was Sunday, Dec. 16.

Winners will be selected shortly after.
