Since 2015, the Center has been working with Trinity’s Department of Education's Master of Education in School Leadership program to recognize and evaluate entrepreneurial opportunities in education.
This collaboration has lead to the development of the Trinity School Design Network, a new school incubator and school leadership program for educators and entrepreneurs to launch innovative and high-quality traditional district, autonomous district, and charter schools in the San Antonio region.

Through the annual Tigertank and PRISm competitions, the Center works with Trinity’s Healthcare Administration program to develop intrapreneurial healthcare management graduate students that exercise transformational leadership and fuel innovation within the healthcare industry.
Trinity University is defining what innovation in the humanities and liberal arts looks like in the 21st Century. The Center works with several groups and departments throughout campus as a critical sponsor and partner in innovation in the humanities through the Humanities Collective, the Mellon Initiative, and the various Humanities Labs on campus.
