Award recognizes cross disciplinary student thinkers

Zipher strongly believes that a cross-disciplinary scientific approach to solving complex problems is a requirement for a successful new generation of leaders.

Zipher is extremely proud to recognize students that exemplify this way of thinking. Congratulations to Joseph McGaunn and Emily Hansen who were awarded the annual, peer nominated, Crowley-Nowick Award for iCons Leaders.
