My family and I are proud to be a part of this innovation center, where students have the opportunity to think outside the box, be intuative, and develop ideas that maybe were just dreams yesterday. The new Keenan Center for Entreprenuership, Innovation and Creativity will allow every student, no matter their major or field of study, the ability to be inspired in whatever or wherever they dare go.”

Established in 2013 with an initial gift from the Keenan Family Foundation, the KCEIC has become a unifying bridge between Le Moyne’s Madden School of Business and the College of Arts and Sciences. In 2019, there were no arts and sciences students enrolled in any entrepreneurship courses. By 2022, nearly 25 percent of students in the program are arts and sciences students, a percentage that is sure to increase with the newly launched campus-wide effort, the Community of Entrepreneurs, Innovators, and Creatives initiative.
