Short Description

Rush Rhees Library is the perfect place to house the Barbara J. Burger iZone. The 12,000 sq. ft. space is named after Barbara J. Burger ’83, an alumna and trustee of the University of Rochester, whose lifelong passion for libraries and innovation inspired her to support the construction of iZone.

iZone supports students  by partnering with different campus resources such as the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship, Rochester Center for Community Leadership, the Gwen M. Greene Center for Career Education and Connections, and the College of Arts, Science, and Engineering.

In addition, iZone holds multiple programs and workshops where students can acquire skills that will help them with their projects, including design thinking, problem solving, public speaking, and idea pitching, among others.

iZone also connects students with subject matter experts in fields they wish to explore. From business leaders, to community activists, artists, and University of Rochester faculty members, students have a chance to test their ideas with individuals who are excited to share their knowledge and experience.
