So, what are the ideals of SEEC?

The program is founded on the idea of improving the general well-being of individuals and societies through integrating social and technical aspects into our scholarly work as a practice for a future career. Through many programs students are able to learn the importance of making a positive impact on those around them. This initiative helps cultivate the future leaders of tomorrow, and help them develop the necessary skills that allow them to make a lasting impact on the world.

The focus for the project was on three programs that fall within SEEC. The Grand Challenge Scholars Program, Humanitarian Engineering and Computing Minor, and the Miami University Center for Assistive Technology. The money raised from this event went to fund various aspects of these three programs.

The goal for the fundraiser was $2500, and over the course of the day the college was able to raise $2,620 for SEEC. The college was able to surpass its goal, and wants to thank everyone who supported our project! We thank you for your time and consideration.

Now we can’t wait to see how these donations can impact our students to become strong and socially conscious leaders of tomorrow!
