The Innovation Hub is hiring leaders to support the growth and development of many campus initiatives and you can play an integral role in them! We are seeking innovative, insightful, determined leaders to join our wonderful team! 

Leading a team at the Innovation Hub is also a big commitment – but with it comes a great reward. Our past Team Leads have gone on to have successful careers in a variety of industries. We encourage our space of learning, and we really want you to feel comfortable in a space of failure and iteration. Our work is fast paced and involves managing tight and often competing deadlines and coordinating with various stakeholders and partners. This is an incredible opportunity for you to advance your skillsets, learn through design thinking, and discover something new!
