  • About Us

    At Lewis & Clark, studying entrepreneurship, leadership, and innovation is not just about starting a business. It is about using the entrepreneurial mindset to analyze, adapt, innovate, and advocate. Sometimes this results in a business. Hopefully, it always leads to you learning how to advocate for yourself and others on your path to a productive, thriving, and impactful life.

    Our new minor in Entrepreneurial Leadership and Innovation gives you the opportunity to integrate your critical thinking, analytical abilities, and communication skills to create and test impact-based solutions for the for-profit and nonprofit world. Through the study of entrepreneurship and substantial hands-on experience, you will develop a greater understanding of yourself and others in order to collaborate more effectively, maximize efforts to achieve common goals, and create positive change. You will gain a powerful toolkit and network enabling you to translate your liberal arts education into action as you prepare for future work, ventures, and adventures.
