Graham Center for Collaborative Innovation (GCCI)
The Engaged Scholars are one of the three key components of the Graham Center for Collaborative Innovation (GCCI) at York College. The other two components are the Center for Academic Innovation and the Knowledge Park. Both of those components support the work of the Scholars.
The Center for Academic Innovation and its Center for Teaching and Learning supports the campus community in enhancing and creating high-impact practices and academic innovation leading to improving teaching and learning at York College of Pennsylvania. As Scholars, you will be invited to share in this work through the Student Academic Innovation Lab (S.A.I.L.). This will give you the opportunity to suggest innovations to the ways the College educates its students, offering an invaluable perspective on the needs of the Scholars as well as the full student body.
The Knowledge Park will be an on-campus innovation hub occupied by local businesses and organizations, where members of those organizations can share ideas and take on key community and business issues. The Engaged Scholars will have the opportunity to work with these thought leaders on projects, network with York’s movers and shakers, and learn key professional skills that will advance their future career while also contributing to solving present problems. It will be a great place to use leadership, Design Thinking, and collaboration skills; to attain high-level internships and co-ops; and to network toward career advancement.
