We’re excited to announce that the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute is featured in Stanford d.school’s “Uncharted Territory: A Guide to Reimagining Higher Education” (download copy here). Inside, you’ll find a collection of immersive case studies and actionable tips on how we and 11 others schools are reshaping the future of higher ed in a student-centered way.
“The leaders profiled in this guide are making important contributions to how we all can think differently about the future of higher education,” the authors write. “Their persistence, bias toward action, and just plain gutsiness, are inspiring.”
In the section about the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, “Uncharted Territory” discusses the unique qualities of this one-of-a-kind community for student entrepreneurs at the University of Utah.
“University of Utah’s Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute is a living learning community for students of all years who want to develop and launch their entrepreneurial endeavors,” the guide reports. “Students don’t just live and work on their projects at the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute — they take workshops and learn from experts on how to develop their enterprises, and lead many of the Institute’s initiatives and programs in paid employee positions.”
The guide continues, “The Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute facilities promote flexibility and creativity, and feature work spaces, a cafe and lounge areas, and tools and materials that students can use.”
