Can innovation be taught?
Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Hannah Levinson takes up this difficult question in a piece for Medium. She discusses the cultural shift on campus as we seek to re-imagine the liberal arts for the 21st century.
"Liberal arts schools are uniquely positioned to be leaders of both thought and action for entrepreneurship and innovation," she writes. "Their naturally cross-disciplinary environments set the stage for the kind of creative, global and nuanced knowledge production and problem-solving that our world requires."
Levinson and her team serve as resources for students, faculty and staff members across campus, designing projects that build in-demand skills and experiences as well as community connections.
