Additional Programs

The Department of Entrepreneurship has several programs that cross disciplines and would be interesting to students engaged in any form of entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship Living Learning Community

The Department of Entrepreneurship offers a first and second-year Living Learning Community (LLC) on-campus for students interested in learning about Entrepreneurship to get special access and first-hand experiences to what the Institute has to offer. This community is open to all students from all backgrounds, passions, and majors.

The Institute knows that Entrepreneurship goes far beyond just creating businesses. The Entrepreneurial Mindset allows all people to become leaders, collaborators, and goal-reachers. From speakers to events to workshops, being a part of the LLC means you will have access to the resources, coaching, classes, and support network to make an impact in college that lasts a lifetime, not just 4 years.
