"The IPRO Program (Interprofessional Projects Program) engages multidisciplinary teams of students in semester-long undergraduate projects based on real-world topics from sponsors that reflect the diversity of the workplace: corporations, entrepreneurial ventures, non-profit organizations and government agencies. The teams are led by a graduate student and guided by co-mentors from the faculty and the sponsor. Teams may include 5 - 15 students from all academic levels (sophomore through graduate school), and across IIT's professional programs (engineering, science, business, law, psychology, design, and architecture). Integration of both vertical (bridging academic levels) and horizontal (bridging professional programs) dimensions within a team experience [stimulate] students interaction across the boundaries of individual disciplines and experiences." From a 1998 IPRO flyer.
Will become a primary source for information on IRPO activities and history.
