Together CREATE leadership, faculty, and students establish the tools and processes needed to provide the many real-world experiential learning student opportunities. To help establish a culture and to sustain the program through the years, cohorts of CREATE Student Fellows serve as faculty assistants and student mentors to train the following generation of MSOE student leaders.
The CREATE Institute ensures that throughout their academic careers at MSOE, all students receive well-rounded, high-impact educational experiences that enhance the relevancy of their learning.
Leitzke states, “Before first-year student classes even start, they are introduced to the MSOE Mindset and the accompanying attributes. By the time the students walk across the stage at graduation, they will have the strong technical skillset that is our tradition, plus they will have deeply developed the MSOE Mindset characteristics. The MSOE Mindset identifies graduates as leaders of character, responsible professionals, passionate learners, and value creators.”
