Fall 2012 IPRO Day a Success, Awards Posted

Friday, November 30, 2012, marked the culmination of the fall semester’s Interprofessional projects (IPRO). Over 40 teams exhibited and presented their semester long work. Dedicated panels of workplace professionals faculty and graduate students spent the day judging the IPRO Projects, and voted on the best exhibits and presentations. This semester the IPRO program implemented a new virtual Judging App that allowed for judging via an iPad app. This addition to the judging process made judging easier, as well as improved the efficiency and accuracy of scoring. The app was very positively received among the judges.

We’d like to thank all of our students, faculty, guests, judges, and sponsors for making this the Best IPRO Day yet!
