Passion to Purpose

Participate in a fun, one day event for creators makers and idea generators!

Way to start preparing for the BEAR Innovation Competition to be held in April Fun day of trying to bring ideas to life

Passion to Purpose Boot Camp is designed to innovate new ideas and address a BIG issue. This could be a project, a social initiative, an artistic piece of work, a business, or anything, really. It is a fun, fast-paced day of developing ideas that are intended to create solutions that promote the common good or recognize an opportunity. You will work in a team of 3-4 people and will have 8 hours to create and present your idea. This is a great way to prepare for the BEAR Innovation Competition and a way to bring your ideas to life!

You will be supplied with caffeine, food, snacks, a fun environment, information, resources, and prizes! 

The challenge is open to all students of any major or class year. You will hone your research and problem-solving skills, make new friends, and gather tools for being a part of the change that you want to see in the world!

Passion to Purpose will be held in January (a specific date will come soon) 

The event is held at the U-Imagine Idea Incubator in the IDC. 

The Challenge

How can we build, create, or make solutions to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all ages?


Make a case to develop an idea that you have to turn your passion into a purpose.
