BRIDGE to Brilliance

BRIDGE to Brilliance (B2B) is a monthly series of personal growth seminars that offer ALL Jaguars and members of the community tools to successfully fast-track their careers and improve personal wellbeing. Participants learn and share ways to stand out and get ahead, including breaking into the career of their dreams, thinking like an entrepreneur, finding fulfilment and personal peace, and using challenge to their advantage. Indeed, there is a BRIDGE for everyone!  This is another excellent opportunity for faculty to enhance their professional development and create partnerships that infuse community engagement and experiential learning opportunities into your curriculum. 

For more information, check out the BTB YouTube channel: Bridge to Brilliance - YouTube.

The Innovation Collective

UHV’s partnership with the Innovation Collective (IC) gives faculty access to professional development workshops, seminars, and conferences hosted by IC personnel that enhance the quality of our teaching and research. In addition, UHV faculty are connected to local companies and industry professionals that they can partner with on service and experiential learning opportunities. In the coming weeks, we will be hosting several IC events right here on campus.
