Innovation can be a nebulous topic. People have their own definition of what innovation entails, and it sets each on their own path to fostering creativity.
The same holds true for local colleges and universities. In examining their own role in fostering innovation across the city, each school has its own mission.
Even so, if you talk to higher education leaders in Milwaukee, the word “innovation” almost always comes attached to another word: "collaboration."
Cooperation and partnership drive many of the initiatives on the city’s biggest campuses.
