The IDEA Center changes students’ lives through the discipline of entrepreneurship, and our curricular and extracurricular programming has received significant recognition and interest. More of our students are choosing to stay and launch companies in our region than ever before. The IDEA Center must provide an even richer array of life-changing opportunities and experiences that can also help propel a sea change for our regional ecosystem.
We seek to expand the IDEA Center and build on its successes by growing the professional staff, increasing funding for opportunities, and augmenting our engagement with the student body. At scale, the IDEA Center can become the largest experiential learning partner on campus, giving students an unparalleled education in startups and innovation and enabling them to be a force for good in the world.
