Intellectual Entrepreneurship Consortium
Educational Leaders Endorse IE
A Vice Presidential Initiative in the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE), Intellectual Entrepreneurship (IE) is an inter-collegial Consortium of the Colleges of Communication, Liberal Arts, Fine Arts, Natural Sciences, Law, Education, Pharmacy, and the Schools of Engineering, Information, Business, Nursing, Architecture, Public Affairs and Social Work. The mission of IE is to educate "citizen-scholars"--individuals who creatively utilize their intellectual capital as a lever for social good. IE is not a program, nor a compartmentalized academic unit or institute; it is an intellectual platform and educational philosophy for instigating learning across disciplinary boundaries and generating collaborations between the academy and society. IE initiatives pertain to the undergraduate experience, graduate study, faculty research and the connections between the university and community. IE has had the added effect of increasing diversity in higher education.
