Develop Entrepreneurial Skills to Direct Your Journey

The four facets of an Entrepreneurial Mindset are:

  • Awareness of how we make a difference
  • Empathy for those we strive to help
  • Optimism to see problems as opportunities
  • Confidence to tolerate risk

Mindset Scholars is a 2 year program to develop an early entrepreneurial mindset. Scholars complete one course from each school to build an interdisciplinary entrepreneurial mindset. Scholars are supported in self-actualization, by being provided specialized advising and access to on-campus experiential opportunities, like IDEA School and Career Launch. 

At the completion of the program, scholars will receive recognition with university leadership and be equipped with tools to direct their life's journey!
