创业创新 at Colgate
它进入了第三个世纪, Colgate is making significant investments in the areas of arts, 创造力, 和创新, enhancing existing academic and co-curricular 程序s in these areas and developing new ones, all in a reimagined region: Colgate’s Middle 校园.
Creativity 和创新 are key advantages of a liberal arts education; they are areas where Colgate can distinguish itself.
The Colgate Initiative for 艺术, Creativity and Innovation in the Middle 校园 is not merely a rethinking of the role of the traditional arts at Colgate, but a rethinking of both our overall educational experience and the campus itself. The Middle 校园 will become the gateway to the Liberal 十大网投靠谱平台的艺术 通过连接, 放大, 重新激活这些项目, 的部门, and the buildings into a neighborhood that welcomes you through Colgate’s College Street entrance.
Within this physical and intellectual context, Colgate is developing an 创业创新 ecosystem, offering students--as well as faculty, 工作人员, and community members--a host of opportunities to bring a concept to reality, 从实践中学习, 创新探索, to take risks and grow in new ways.
Programmatically, Colgate will build on the strengths and successes of its signature 思想转化为行动 程序, developing new 程序s that connect entrepreneurship 和创新 with the arts, 教师的研究, 以及校园里的“创客”. We will also be developing 程序s that prompt students to think broadly about how they present themselves to the world: how they articulate their aspirations and tell their own stories, develop a personal brand that maps onto their guiding values, or consider how they might want to make public use of their name, 图像, 和样式. Information about these new 程序s will be rolled out over the 2021-22 school year: please check back to see what’s new.
Physically, Colgate will expand its locus for entrepreneurship by supplementing the existing 共同办公中心 in downtown Hamilton with new Middle 校园 spaces. The upper floors of the Dana 艺术 Center, an iconic mid-century building 设计ed by renowned architect Paul Rudolph, will become the central hub of 创业创新 at Colgate. A renovated Dana will be a place of round-the-clock 创造力 and engagement, offering dedicated project rooms and maker-spaces, workspaces for ideation and collaboration, meeting areas for group work and “phone booths” for private conversations. 在达纳, 创业创新 will be a central part of the Middle 校园 nexus of experimentation, 设计, 数字创造, 实践探索, 和创新.
This is an exciting time for entrepreneurship 和创新 at Colgate. To fulfill the vision laid out in Colgate's 三世纪的计划, our team is developing new 程序s and building strengths in existing ones. We are collaborating with faculty, 工作人员, 校友, and students to envision the future, 制定我们的路线图, 并采取行动.卡洛琳Strobel-Larsen Director, 创业创新 项目
