About The Summer Innovation Experience

Leadership and innovation skills are highly coveted in today’s society. We have to prepare students for this workforce of innovation and put them in the best position to be successful. Community and economic growth will depend on leaders equipped to remake the world in an uncertain future.

Set on Purdue Northwest’s Westville campus, the Summer Innovation Experience day camp provides an engaging introduction to leadership and innovation. Throughout four days of fun, hands-on activities and learning, students will practice 30 key skillsets that will help them become more confident, curious, creative, critical-thinking and collaborative leaders.

Summer Innovation Experience students will:

  • Learn what innovation is and how the future depends on it
  • Rediscover their creativity
  • Build confidence in their own problem-solving skills
  • Learn about different leadership styles and be given a chance to practice them
  • Meet local business and community leaders
  • Have fun!

Our aim is to guide each participant on their development journey to become a more authentic, vibrant and innovative leader who can then share his/her/their gifts with communities across Northwest Indiana.

To request a disability-related accommodation, please contact the Office of Institutional Equity at oie@pnw.edu or (219) 989-2163 five days prior to the event.
