Programs for the MC Community


Student Enrichment


Complementing the school’s curricular provisions are activities collaboratively designed by mentors from across academic backgrounds. Most of these enrichment activities employ design thinking to enable learners to manipulate content knowledge to address real-life problems. Student-led initiatives also flourish at the center as a way of supporting ongoing leader formation.

Knowledge and Innovation Management

As the school’s arm for designing, developing, and documenting novel programs, products, processes, and services, the center also participates in securing necessary intellectual property rights that protect its knowledge and innovation management ecosystem. Relative to this, it facilitates specialized training for community members to guarantee the integrity and fair use of their knowledge-based productions.
