Fellows

Spring 2021

Congratulations to the inaugural class of SoReMo Fellows!

The Fellows will work with faculty and advisors, in a multidisciplinary environment, to complete and showcase their projects. They will incorporate feedback from community stakeholders and subject matter experts from industry, academia, and government. During the process, Fellows will gain communications training, interdisciplinary experience, and contacts across campus and the community.

Major discussions will take place in the Forum, a public bimonthly seminar for presenting issues, challenges, solutions, roadblocks, and innovative ideas that come out of projects to a broad, multidisciplinary audience of students, faculty, and external advisors. Student participation in the Forum will not only help extend and polish their projects, but also is designed to expand their academic and professional networks.
