The Pre-College Innovative Outreach Institute (PIOI) will act as a hub of collaboration for pre-college outreach activities conducted throughout campus. The Institute will coordinate and support activities engaging K–12 students in unique, innovative activities both on and off campus.

Outreach efforts will maximize inter-department collaboration to eliminate program duplication, enabling effective use of resources while maximizing the impact made on each student. Initiatives spawning from these efforts will focus on creating innovative best practices that can be replicated on a local, regional, national, and international stage.
