“I’m proud that The University of Texas at Austin is home to the Intellectual Entrepreneurship consortium (IE). Since 1997, the consortium has strived to live out the highest ideals of academic life. Whether helping students find their true passion, exposing first-generation college students to the world of graduate studies, or enabling students to better serve society, the consortium has touched the lives of undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members in profound ways. I look forward to seeing how this initiative continues to inform our national dialogue about the role of higher education in society, and I encourage the support of this important work.”
John Hennessy, Stanford University President
“UT’s Intellectual Entrepreneurship project (IE) is a leader nationally. It provides best practices in promoting diversity in the academy, especially in attracting students to the critical areas of science and technology. IE also leads the way–through mentorship and research–in addressing the challenge of preparing an educated workforce.”
Dr. Lovell A. Jones, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Professor, U.T. Distinguished Teaching Professor at The University of Texas
“Here is an educational program I wish other institutions would emulate. As stated in some of its materials, Intellectual Entrepreneurship (IE) is both a program and a philosophy of education. As a philosophy, its objective is to educate citizen scholars-individuals able to leverage their knowledge for social good. As a collection of programs, IE provides curriculum and academic-community experiences enabling students to discover what they are passionate about, devise concrete plans to bring their visions to fruition, and in so doing own and become accountable for their education.
