The Randall Lewis Center for Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Social Impact serves as a hub and provides resources to support University of La Verne students, alumni, faculty, and staff, and the entrepreneurial initiatives of small businesses, entrepreneurs, and innovators through the Inland Empire and beyond as they strive to strengthen their economic health.
The center provides:
- Certificate Programs
- Workforce Development
The center’s goals include:
- Promoting the academic, personal, scholarly, and professional growth of University of La Verne students, faculty, and staff;
- Providing a productive learning and working environment for students, faculty, staff, and community members and organizations; and
- Fostering a lifetime of engagement and well-being among University of La Verne students and our regional communities.
The Randall Lewis Center will ultimately support residents of Inland Southern California through strategic partnerships with a focus on businesses owned and operated by women, minorities, and veterans. In addition to equipping students with real-life entrepreneurial skills and experience, the center will strive to stimulate economic growth in the community by integrating student programming with regional small business operations. Students will learn at the same time that they help local businesses to innovate.
