Denison Launch Lab
Denison Launch Lab is a new, innovative career readiness space located in downtown Columbus, Ohio. An extension of the college’s Austin E. Knowlton Center, Launch Lab brings together ed-tech firms, academics, entrepreneurs, and enterprises of all sorts to continuously develop the next generation of career preparation, exploration, and launch programs,and to provide students with a dynamic and interactive setting to explore their strengths, bridge their major to career options, and immerse themselves in workplace culture and skills building.
Launch Lab’s one-of-a-kind Journey program will guide students through a process to design their individualized career roadmap. Referencing their personal roadmap, students integrate the three dimensions of their higher education experience: academics, student life, and career readiness. The Journey program and resulting roadmap enable students to be intentional about every aspect of their university experience, and to create an outcome that is both successful and fulfilling as they launch their careers and lives.
Denison Launch Lab also provides space and support for Denison faculty to connect their students and coursework to resources, experiences, and opportunities in Columbus. Launch Lab is funded by a grant from The Austin E. Knowlton Foundation.
