The Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative is honored to be selected by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) as one of fourteen partners in their Re-Imagining the First Year of College Project (RFY), alongside the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, USA Funds, John Gardner Institute and 44 AASCU member institutions.

RFY is a three-year initiative to develop comprehensive, institutional transformation that redesigns the first year of college and creates sustainable change for student success. “We are thrilled that many of the nation’s leading higher education companies will be sharing their subject matter expertise and resources with our campuses,” said George Mehaffy, AASCU’s vice president for academic leadership and change.

ELI is delighted to have the opportunity to bring an entrepreneurial mindset to academic leaders, faculty, and first year students. We look forward to kicking this project off at AASCU’s Innovation Summit at the University of Central Florida in June.
