SENCER Centers for Innovation

The SENCER Centers for Innovation (SCIs) offer expertise, local support for members of the SENCER community, and meetings and workshops to complement national SENCER Summer Institutes and Washington Symposia.


The SCIs were inaugurated in 2008, and since then, have grown and expanded in number. Central Plains, hosted by Butler University, Great Lakes, hosted by Case Western Reserve University, and Chesapeake Bay, hosted by George Mason University, are the newest Centers.

SCI events are open to educators, administrators, and students from around the country and internationally, but are especially designed with the needs and interests of their regional areas in mind.
