Center for Innovation Research
iLabs conducts research studies that focus on the betterment of the University of Michigan-Dearborn. This research brings together teams of faculty and students to work on customized research solutions targeted at the specific needs of the campus. Recent projects include creating an exit survey for the College of Business, competitive analysis of graduate programs, and surveying visitors of the Henry Ford Estate.
Students present findings from the research studies to University administrators to continually look at how to better serve our stakeholders. As a result, changes have been made to course offerings, internship programs, and opportunities for involvement of students and community stakeholders.
