The CLA Student Experience Today

Four CLA students sitting on a bench, engaged in conversation outside.

CLA prepares students to develop entrepreneurial mindsets, to ask probing questions, to wonder why and what if, and to become empathetic, inventive and future-oriented leaders. Explore how we are transforming today's students into tomorrow's change makers, driven by a purpose to do the most good we can for others.
