Mission + impact
We strive to integrate entrepreneurial principles into the UCF experience.
We believe all UCF students can benefit from taking steps to develop as entrepreneurial leaders. They face a professional future that may span over 50 years. Most will need to reinvent and reposition themselves occasionally, and perhaps radically, to pursue emerging opportunities and avoid obsolescence. Embracing the higher education experience as the beginning of a journey – one that continually engages, challenges, and expands professional capabilities – prepares one to grow, change, and meet the demands of subsequent adventures.
Where does the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) come in?
We help students, faculty, staff, and recent alumni embrace the entrepreneurial mindset. Our programs, events, and competitions are open to all UCF students from all disciplines and degree programs. We aim to be inclusive in our offerings and invite diverse community leaders to contribute to our mission. Whether you’re seeking entrepreneurship as a career path, have an idea and want to explore it further, or want to apply some entrepreneurial skills towards your current job, we have something for everyone.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to GET STARTED!
