What's in your toolbox?

EMC^2

Centre College students have the opportunity to earn Resilience-Corps badges throughout their involvement with CentreWorks. Each badge represents invaluable professional and entrepreneurial mindset skills and experiences gained and demonstrated at CentreWorks. Through a series of badges, the Entrepreneurial Mindset CentreWorks Certification EMC^2 documents a student’s cumulative entrepreneurial experience while at Centre College. Qualifying students earn the credential by working in a variety of innovative entrepreneurial roles, often through or alongside CentreWorks' programs. Students participate, learn, and facilitate programs within CentreWorks to earn badges. Five badges acquired in diverse programs culminate in the EMC^2 certification. Students or community members who pursue the EMC^2 can expect to gain innovation process mastery, startup leadership skills, financial/investment acumen, communication essentials, and growth mindset.

RESILIENCE Bootcamp

This entrepreneurial bootcamp works to bridge and bond incoming Centre College first-years to the Boyle County community and broader regional community. Resilience is key to sustainable and thriving businesses, organizations, and communities. However, it is also an important tool to students who are entering a new community and the college world. Using a speed design format, students will experience the Centre/Danville community by working alongside community champions, and students will gain skills essential to creative problem-solving through immersion in the entrepreneurial mindset and the Human-Centered Approach™ (HCA). Students will hone the entrepreneurial mindset promoted by the CentreWorks initiative, utilizing resources to develop successful business practices and positively impact the broader community. Students will gain skills essential to entrepreneurship through immersion in customer engagement, design thinking, peer collaboration, and learn startup principles. Outcomes include startup businesses and pilot programs, along with support for area businesses, social enterprises and non-profits. 

PURSUIT Enrichment Quest

Do you have a life-changing experience, passion, culture, cause, or research to share with our community? PURSUIT Enrichment Quest is a series of events that catalyze conversation, learning, and community-building. PURSUIT is designed to celebrate, encourage, and promote lifelong learning. All PURSUIT Enhancement Quest programs are community-inspired and led- sometimes by students! We empower you to join us to celebrate and educate our diverse community. If you are a Centre College student, you may earn an R-Corps badge along the way to demonstrate your hard work and amazing contribution to making our community more inclusive and resilient.
