Davidson Students Make Great Innovators
The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative reimagines a liberal arts education for the 21st century by preparing students to be innovators in a rapidly changing world. We provide the tools and resources liberal arts students need to work iteratively, take smart risks, prototype solutions to real-world issues, engage creatively with technology, and bring ideas to life.
The initiative provides opportunities to blend your passions with the support, structure, and resources to address challenging problems with innovative ideas. It advances important and in-demand skills and experiences for students, alumni, and faculty who wish to apply the liberal arts by thinking critically, engaging creatively with technology, working iteratively, taking smart risks, and prototyping tangible solutions to real-world issues. By leveraging Davidson's strong foundation in the liberal arts and commitment to educational excellence and access, the initiative supports the college by contributing to its mission of preparing servant leaders with humane instincts who will make a disproportionate impact for good.
Why the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative? Entrepreneurial approaches to problem solving are now a key component of leadership and service and valuable across all fields and professions. A hallmark of a Davidson education is that students are producing knowledge rather than passively consuming it. Entrepreneurship (broadly defined) is one way our students actively produce knowledge. The Initiative aims to focus on the range of talents and skills that entrepreneurial problem solving requires so Davidson students and graduates can take their place as innovators in a rapidly changing world. I&E programs provide students and alumni with the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship with funding, internships, mentorship, innovation space, workshops and more.
