Global Information Engagement Program
The need for innovative information tools is a global challenge. The Global Information Engagement Program (GIEP) is an innovative approach to learning which partners non-profit, research, and educational organizations in an international setting with carefully selected student teams. Project teams from UMSI and University graduate programs spend a semester studying and creating plans for implementation of an identified information challenge that has high social impact value. GIEP began in 2013 with the India initiative and is part of a larger University of Michigan initiative to create sustainable partnerships in India.
