Academic Collaborations

Bike at Illinois

"Working with the F&S team was a wonderful experience. The team welcomed me with open arms and created an environment in which I was comfortable with sharing ideas as well as drafting new ones together. I love the commitment, passion, and excitement the team has every time we met."
    ~ Chantelle Hicks, College of Medicine

Academic collaboration is an essential component to the future of F&S, and a major theme emphasized in the F&S Strategic Plan. F&S can contribute industrial expertise to research projects, provide data, make facilities available as living laboratories, offer tours for classes and special events, engage students in experiential learning opportunities, and provide grants for research projects and endorse research initiatives with federal granting agencies.
