DifferenceMaker Program Helps Bring Student Ideas to Life
By David Perry
Launched in May 2012, DifferenceMaker is one of those UMass Lowell programs where everything comes together. Innovation. Cross-disciplinary cooperation. Communication. Engagement. Entrepreneurship.
The idea is to help students understand how they can make a difference in the world and to gather with others – faculty, other campus programs and students from colleges other than their own – to bring their vision to life.
And if it really works out, a business may emerge from the hard work.
It wouldn’t be the first time.
