The PPI is introduced as "a hub for consumer-oriented technology research."
Gary Bertoline, dean of the College of Technology, told the Alumnus, “Instruction and research will be interdisciplinary-based, providing students with a well-rounded STEM education combined with critical thinking skills, cultural awareness, and the ability to excel in a collaborative environment.
