SAP University Alliances, Interaction-Design Foundation (IDF), and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) are pleased to announce the Share the Knowledge Tour will stop at VCU on June 10, 2013.

In mid-May in Orlando, IDF’s biker, Max, began a four-year around the world bike and canoe journey. Over the next six months Max will bike and canoe more than 6,000 miles, visiting universities across North America to share his story with professors, students, and local communities. Mile by mile, city by city, university by university Max is promoting open access to quality educational materials. Education is the single most powerful way to lift people out of poverty and change lives, and Max will share this vision at every stop. View this video preview and check out the bike tour website and the VCU blog.

Program Agenda

At 2 p.m. students, professors, and community members will welcome Max as he rides up to the Cary Street side of Snead Hall. Attendees will have the chance to check out Max’s bike-canoe, network, and register for free IDF membership. The event will then move inside Snead Hall to hear Max’s story and a few words from SAP executive and VCU alumnus John Purcell.

We encourage you to follow the Share the Knowledge tour online. Videos, photos, and blogs will be posted weekly, and available at www.uac.sap.com and http://tour.interaction-design.org/.
