Revolutionary Challenge

Finalist teams to pitch initiatives for college’s next big adventure Saturday, May 2

The ballots are in, and the finalists are tapped. Now four Revolutionary Challenge teams are gearing up to pitch their proposals in person on Saturday, May 2, at the Weiss Center for the Arts. And Dickinsonians everywhere are invited to share in the excitement as the college's bold new adventure unfolds.

And now, the home stretch begins!

On May 2, each finalist will deliver a brief presentation before the PPI and Dickinson’s Board of Trustees. All are welcome to attend.

The President's Panel on Innovation (PPI), a body of 14 innovative entrepreneurs, business leaders and educators who will work with the college to guide the completion of the Revolutionary Challenge

The President's Panel on Innovation (PPI), a body of 14 innovative entrepreneurs, business leaders and educators, met in October to review community feedback on the 49 proposals and select the finalists. Members of the PPI were then teamed with each of the four finalists to help them develop their presentations for the May 2 event.
