Additional Centennial Center Programs

Entrepreneur-in-Residence Hours

Entrepreneur-in-Resident (EIR) office hours provide an opportunity for all HWS students, faculty and staff to receive counseling on their ideas, business planning questions, venture projects, or careers. EIR meetings are held with entrepreneurship staff as well as alumni, subject matter experts, and local business owners who can help you take your for-profit or non-profit venture forward. All meetings are in-person and interactive when possible. All EIR meetings are booked using this online calendar.


Each year, the Centennial Center offers financial support to innovative student leaders in the form of fellowships. With awards for the Centennial Fellowship for up to $5000, the Global Fellowship for up to $3,000 and the Cohen Fellowship for up to $1,500, the Centennial Center invites proposals from current HWS students who can craft thoughtful projects that allow them to develop their leadership identity and engage in practical experiences with significant implications. 

Leader in Residence

Each year, the Centennial Center invites a leader to campus to share their perspective, expertise and experiences with the campus and surrounding community.  Generally a multi-day visit, past Leaders-in-Residence have come from a variety of fields and focus on a compelling leadership topics that connect to the Centennial Center’s three focus areas, global, community, and entrepreneurial leadership.  Leaders facilitate workshops, provide lectures and generate dynamic classroom discussions during their stay.

Faculty Advisory Board

In 2014 the Centennial Center established a Faculty Advisory Board to provide strategic guidance and support. As the Centennial Center continues to grow, this advisory board will be instrumental in supporting the Center’s work and direction. A total of eight faculty members across a variety of disciplines currently serve on the board.
