Resources

Student teams have a variety of resources to help them craft their challenge ideas. Alden Library has created the "Resource Guide for Innovation Challenge: http://libguides.library.ohiou.edu/innovation, that points students to industry information, market analyses and other important data. 
 
Starting in the fall, faculty and professional-led workshops will lead students through the details of crafting a challenge response. Check out our events listings for upcoming opportunities.  In addition, selected faculty are willing to help coach student teams through specifics of proposals.
