Fall IPRO Day Awards

logo_ipro_new1The culmination of the fall semester’s Interprofessional Projects (IPRO) Program was held on IPRO Day on November 18 when more than 100 teams exhibited their semester-long work throughout Hermann Hall. Dedicated panels of workplace professionals, faculty, and graduate students spent the day judging the IPRO projects, and voting on the best exhibits.

The IPRO Program would like to thank all of the students, faculty, Illinois Tech partners, guests, judges, and sponsors for making this the best IPRO Day yet.
