Entrepreneurship and Innovation
We recognize entrepreneurship as a mindset and means of sharing our ideas with the world. Innovation enables us to create functional and emotional value. We learn to take risks, work through failure, and experience success. Together, these concepts help us make meaningful contributions that benefit society and the earth.
We employ human-centered design as a process to learn empathy and compassion. It serves as a foundation for thoughtful leadership and a way to break down biases and stereotypes. We learn to be good citizens who listen to those around us.
Integrated and Experiential
We seek an experience that is both integrated and experiential. We make connections across disciplines and subjects to build an intuitive and deep understanding of learning outcomes. Our innovators apply their learning to hands-on projects that offer real-world experience.
Belonging and Togetherness
We strive to create a sense of belonging wherever we are. We want those in our community to feel accepted, valued, and heard. We actively appreciate one another and seek to understand how we are different and how we are the same.
Entrepreneurship is a process of trial and error. How do you creatively solve a problem in a way that’s economical and technologically feasible?
