Industry, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation Path Community

This community is full for fall 2021.

What is the Industry, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation Path Community?

The Industry, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation Path Community (IEI) is designed for exploring students who are looking to revolutionize industry, start their own businesses, and are interested in how to find and communicate answers to some of society’s hardest questions.

The IEI community engages students in a rich cocurricular collaboration with IEI Flight Path academic advisors and Career Center career readiness coaches—including advising hours in the residence hall—and specialized workshops, programs, and events such as registration sessions and networking opportunities with faculty members, alumni, and employers. Students in this community will have a designated student lounge/small classroom and two offices located in the residence hall for study groups and meetings with faculty members, academic advisors, career coaches, and peer mentors. Living in this community will provide support for students to explore majors, get involved in undergraduate research, and get a head start into career pathways.

Why should I choose to live in this community?

Students who wish to live with others sharing interests in the majors and minors within this academic and career theme will enjoy a dynamic and interdisciplinary home environment with access to a wide range of social, academic, and early career support. There is no course work associated with this community.


Residence Hall: Unthank Hall. Students living in this community will select roommates who are also in the community.

Please note that communities can be moved to different residence halls if the size or need of the community changes.
