The ICE Institute is a multidisciplinary, University-wide resource that drives educational and professional development opportunities in the areas of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. Through programs, events and classes, ICE provides opportunities for students to develop and highlight their entrepreneurial spirit.
The ICE Institute is located in the Idea Accelerator, a welcoming and dynamic space that expands the mind, sparks creativity and connects students with alumni and business leaders. The Institute’s signature programs include Pitch Day, which brings together students from across campus to work on innovative business plans, and immersion trips like Villanova in the Valley, Villanova on Set and the newly launched Villanova on the Hill.
Your gift to the ICE Institute on 1842 Day will support the initiatives and programs that inspire students to think outside the box and bring new ideas to life.
1842 Day is Villanova's first-ever day of giving. This is our opportunity to show pride and gratitude for the impact Villanova has on each of us, in our communities and around the world. Alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends—let's make a difference TOGETHER!
We need your help to reach 1,842 donors in 1,842 minutes, between 12 p.m. on Tuesday, September 19 and 6:42 p.m. on Wednesday, September 20 (EDT). Whether you give $5, $175 or $1,842, your generosity will count toward achieving our goal.
Your contributions will result in more dollars for our students and programs, strengthen our national reputation and bolster the unprecedented success of For the Greater Great®: The Villanova Campaign to Ignite Change.
