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.
