The Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership and Transformational Change (CELTC) is a collaborative environment where undergraduate and graduate students, staff, faculty, Evergreen alumni, and community members can actively engage with complex challenges through applied entrepreneurial and leadership learning and teaching opportunities in the curriculum, certificate programs, and co-/extra-curricular opportunities. The Center supports the development of social, sustainable, and business entrepreneurial leadership skills with integrated, interdisciplinary support from faculty, staff, peer mentors, community, and tribal communities. Students will leave Evergreen ready to think critically and creatively, participate collaboratively, and lead compassionately toward a more just and sustainable world.
