Housed within the DDCE and the Moody College of Communication, the cross-disciplinary program connects undergraduates with faculty and graduate students to help them align their passions with their career goals.

“Diversity is not the cause or the reason for this program, but it is the consequence of this program,” IE founder and director Rick Cherwitz stated in the story. “We need to take advantage of every mechanism available, including both targeted programs and programs like Intellectual Entrepreneurship, which may have special consequences for underrepresented populations precisely because it integrates and improves education overall.”
