The third annual Global Innovation Challenge at the College of William & Mary (WMGIC) seeks to create a platform for students from diverse disciplines to collaboratively analyze and propose innovative solutions to globally important problems in the field of international development. Through the case competition, mentoring from professionals, and networking opportunities, WMGIC fosters collaboration between students, professional, and other relevant stakeholders in the field. Global challenges in development are interconnected and complex. WMGIC adopts an interdisciplinary, design thinking approach to extending responses to these challenges beyond one discipline or lens.
