The Ice House Student Success Program is designed to equip students with the perseverance and determination of an entrepreneurial mindset at the onset of their academic journey, empowering them to take ownership of their future while helping them develop the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that will enable them to succeed academically and in life.
Initial pilots of Ice House as a student success course have produced significant results, both in student persistence and college level course completion. Based upon early promising results, the Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative (ELI) is working to scale the impact from thousands of students to 10,000 students at multiple institutions, while continuing to measure and evaluate student success.
