Entrepreneurial Living Learning Community (ELLC) – University of Nebraska Omaha

A living learning community designed to support and inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs.


The ELLC was created to propel and inspire students to pursue their entrepreneurial curiosities and interests through a specific curriculum with an emphasis on experiential learning and programming. This group of freshmen and sophomores will be exposed to varying aspects of business as they meet founders and owners, tour businesses, participate in workshops designed to create a business, and travel the country to visit entrepreneurial hotspots. Students are NOT required to be business students. 

The ELLC students live together as a cohort in Scott Village. Students accepted into the ELLC are guaranteed housing in UNO’s Scott Village and receive a $2,500 scholarship over two years. The Entrepreneurial Living Learning Community (ELLC) is open to incoming freshmen of any major who are interested in innovation and entrepreneurship.
