Spring 2014 IPRO Day Awards

r_gr01_tag.gifThe culmination of the spring semester’s Interprofessional Projects (IPRO) Program was held on IPRO Day on Friday, April 25. Seventy three teams exhibited their semester-long work throughout Hermann Hall. Dedicated panels of workplace professionals, faculty and graduate students spent the day judging the IPRO projects, and voting on the best exhibits.

The IPRO Program would like to thank all of the students, faculty, guests, judges and sponsors for making this the best IPRO Day yet.
