SOUTH BEND, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – The University of Notre Dame is launching a search for the next leader of its innovation hub, the IDEA Center. Bryan Ritchie, who is vice president and associate president for innovation at the university, has announced he will step down at the end of the year.
Notre Dame says Ritchie has accepted a new role outside of college.
Ritchie joined the university in 2016 to lead the IDEA Center, the school’s collaborative innovation hub.
The IDEA Center employs approximately 30 staff members who work with students, faculty and staff at Notre Dame to help them bring their ideas and products to market.
âHis vision, passion and vast experience have been at the heart of his maturation from a nascent center to an established and respected business incubator,â said Marie Lynn Miranda, Provost of Notre Dame. âHe has developed a strong leadership team within the IDEA Center, collaborations across the university and community partnerships that will provide vital support as we manage this transition.â
Notre Dame says she is developing a leadership transition plan to support the centre’s current projects.
