About

Who we are

The Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University produces ideas that transform lives. We do this by exploring the way key institutions in society — business, government, and community — ignite economic growth and increase opportunity for everyone to improve their lives.

By acting as a platform to connect academic entrepreneurs with today’s most pressing challenges, we are tackling today’s toughest questions and training the leaders of tomorrow.

What we do

We train students, conduct research with a national network of scholars, and communicate transformative solutions to our country’s most pressing issues.

We focus on those factors that ignite economic growth and increase opportunity for everyone to improve their lives by unleashing innovation, entrepreneurship, and empowering individuals and communities to find cooperative solutions to today’s greatest challenges.
