2021 Innovation Competition & Award Winners

In conjunction with the launch of CCI’s inaugural Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Council, this year’s DE&I theme spotlights the College’s commitment to support the aspects that make us unique, including race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin and socio-economic status.

We received 22 submissions from students, faculty and professional staff for the Fifth Annual Innovation Competition & Award. During the crowd voting phase, we recorded approximately 450 project votes. The top 5 projects, based on the crowd voting, were selected as finalists and reviewed by the Selection Committee for the award decisions.

We are pleased to announce this year’s winning project and team:

CCI Connect: CCI Research & Opportunity Portal
Stephen Hansen, Undergraduate
Vivek Khimani, Undergraduate

Winners will receive a $2,500 award (split equally among the team members) and will be recognized at a future CCI Honors event.

Thank you to all the submitters and the Selection Committee for participating in the process. Congratulations to the awardees!
