UK announced its Cornerstone Community Innovation Partner (CIP) for the 2023-24 academic year + it happens to be a favorite resource of ours here at LEXtoday: CivicLex.

So, what exactly does this mean?

For starters, CivicLex will have a physical presence at The Cornerstone, creating a home for civic education, technology, and community-building programs. The nonprofit will work with the university to host workshops, community events, and create educational data installations.

The 12-month partnership between the school + CivicLex aims to help foster the vision of The Cornerstone — promoting innovation and entrepreneurship through a meaningful connection between the community and the university.

“The CIP program is an intentional approach to community-driven social innovation that guarantees the university’s resources are highly accessible to the community, fostering a stronger sense of collaboration and mutual benefit,” said Melody Flowers, UK Assistant Vice President for Economic Development & Real Estate.
