We are excited to share the Spring 2023 edition of The Word magazine. This edition highlights the incredible work accomplished by faculty members, students, and alumni at the University of the Incarnate Word. Our focus for this magazine is UIW Will Innovate at Every Level.

In this issue, read about the solar-powered charging station being designed and built by students on the Broadway campus, learn about how the IT departments in Mexico and the U.S. joined forces to enable faculty and students to better communicate and educate, bid a beloved UIW community member a fond farewell as she retires, and catch up with an alumna faculty member making a difference in the world of Chemistry and STEM programming.
