You Have to See This Place

A lab that torques wind-turbine blades until they snap. Another, down the hall, that helps us build better prosthetic limbs. Across campus, a professor and her students are working on nanofibers that could fight infectious diseases more effectively than antibiotics. And that’s only three labs. We have dozens.

You have to see what happens here.

Researching contaminants of emerging concern in the Great Lakes. Changing the behavior of renters so they consume dramatically less energy. And, to capture it all, social documentation: making films, podcasts, magazine articles and more.

The campus is beautiful. The views are great. But they don’t compare to the transformations that take place here every day.

Come here. Take a look around. This place changes people. We’ll show you how.
