For those of you without access to the many thousands of copies of The Lawrentian around campus, this week’s cover story features none other than the good work of the champions of the Innovation & Entrepreneurship program.

According to Professor John Brandenberger (and, no, his first name is not “Emeritus”) “There is no better time than the present… to teach liberal arts students who are developing the creative skills to be innovators over their four years at Lawrence, to be aggressive in their entrepreneurship.”

Well put.

President Beck also weighs in:

“In the arts, professors are interested in theater internships, print-making workshops and other ventures that enable students to connect their major to a business orientation. There are many examples of student interest so far, such as The Rabbit Gallery and Baroque Music and Dance Ensemble. [In addition], alumni are offering more and more internships to students, to help students put their thoughts into action, sometimes for the first time.”

The cover photo of The Lawrentian includes I&E stalwarts Professor Adam Galambos and Professor Gary Vaughn, along with a nice profile shot of budding entrepreneur, Ranga Wimalasuriya
