The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies provides opportunities for the study of the current and historical role of entrepreneurs in market economies. It provides a forum for public debate about the roles played by entrepreneurs in local, regional, national and international economic spheres. The Center provides focus for public debate concerning the effects of economic policy in such areas as taxes, property rights, government spending, and the regulation of entrepreneurship. The Center engages in activities complementing the educational enterprise at the College, such as sponsoring nationally prominent speakers on an occasional basis. The Center will sponsor internships for Hendrix students with entrepreneurs and will undertake other educational activities for the public consistent with the above purposes, such as seminars, workshops, and retreats focused on business and business leadership in relation to the liberal arts.
