Workshop Duration

The three and a half day workshop begins at 8:30 am on Monday, June 3, 2013 and finishes at noon on Thursday, June 6, 2013. Because of the active and collaborative nature of the workshop, attendees are encouraged to schedule their travel so that they can participate in the entire workshop. 

Location & Typical Day

All sessions will take place on the campus of Rose-Hulman Insti-tute of Technology in Terre Haute, IN. Sessions will run from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm each day and will include a continental breakfast before 9:00 am, morning and afternoon snacks, and lunch. There will be a welcome reception Monday evening (Day 1) and a dinner on Tuesday evening (Day 2).

Workshop Fee

The fee for the workshop is $800 USD and covers all workshop materials and sessions, continental breakfasts and lunches, snacks, welcome reception (Day 1), and dinner (Day 2).


To encourage a team from an institution to attend, the fee is reduced to $700 USD for the second team member and $600 USD for each additional team member.

Graduate Students: A limited number of MACH Change Agent Grants are available to cover the workshop fee for graduate students.

Housing & Travel

Housing, travel, and meals (except those listed above) are the participant's responsibility. If you are traveling by air, the nearest airport is the Indianapolis International Airport (IND) which is located approximately 70 miles east of Terre Haute. You will need to rent a car at the airport to drive to either the Rose-Hulman campus or to the hotels. Other transportation options, such as ride share, may be available.

Housing is available at several hotels within a short drive of the campus. A block of hotel rooms will be held for the participants. Approximate cost for a hotel room (single occupancy) is $100 per night plus tax. Housing is also available in new on-campus apartments/rates from $18.40 to $35.00/person plus 12% tax.

Because attendance is limited and an application is required, please do not purchase tickets for travel or hotel accommodations until you receive confirmation of your acceptance. Detailed information about housing and additional travel directions will be sent to participants after acceptance.

Rose-Hulman reserves the right to make changes in the workshop without notice to improve the workshop and to respond to participant interests and changes in personnel.
