1.) something new or different introduced
2.) the act of innovating; introduction of new things or methods

With one foot in the present and one foot in the future,

Wright State University has created an environment where people can flourish, generate ideas, be authentic, and ask the questions that lead to Innovation. By committing to be part of the solution, Wright State University meets the region's education, business, government, and community partners where they are and asks: "What are the problems you're facing today? What do you need? How can we help?" The result is social innovation, technological innovation, policy innovation...innovation of the sort that John Kao, author of Innovation Nation, calls the creation of "something that is both new and valuable."
