da Vinci Center for Innovation
The academic and experiential offerings of the VCU da Vinci Center for Innovation aim to create T-shaped individuals who are anchored in a discipline and have the capacity and openness to span across disciplines. As a result, students are better prepared to engage in our increasingly global world because they have developed the skills and tools necessary to engage in difficult dialog, to disagree, to reframe failure, and make change. The da Vinci Center is committed to increasing diversity and inclusivity in entrepreneurial and technical ecosystems; recognizing that our students represent the next generation of innovators and creators.
The students, faculty, and staff that make up the da Vinci Center community aim to create a culture of curiosity in everything they do. We believe that learning happens at the intersection of curiosity and collaboration. Our charter and design aspirations guide us in the work that we do.
