Entrepreneurial Learning Community
The DU Relationship with the ISU Entrepreneurial & Innovation Learning Community
During the course of working to bring back the ISU DU Chapter, the alums involved were introduced to the ISU Entrepreneurial & Innovation Learning Community (EILC). Currently the EILC is housed across the street from 117 Ash in Buchanan Hall. Next Fall they will move into our house and bring their entrepreneurship education and leadership programming to the DU house. The male members of the EILC will form the core group of our DU recolonization effort. The EILC members share many of the same goals and values as we DU’s have, and we are excited to have them become DU’s as we approach the celebration of 100 years on campus.

The ISU Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship is a gateway that works in two directions. In one direction, ISU faculty, researchers, and students become connected to the entrepreneurial world. In the other, Iowa’s business and entrepreneurial community gain access to an array of resources and information within Iowa State University.
Located in Iowa State University’s Research Park, the Pappajohn Center is the catalyst that brings together the people and ideas necessary for launching or growing successful enterprises. Whether the undertaking is a student initiated enterprise, a new small business, a high technology start-up, or a corporate spin-off, the Pappajohn Center provides assistance and resources toward individual elements of the development process or to the entire launch of the new venture.
The Center has two primary objectives: to create a culture that encourages entrepreneurship and innovation, and to provide the tools necessary for building and improving Iowa’s businesses.
