Aspen Undergraduate Consortium

From 2012-2021, the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program hosted over 100 colleges and universities in the Aspen Undergraduate Consortium. This vibrant learning community continues under the leadership of a dedicated group of educators and will convene next in June 2024 at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, University of Utah. For more information, visit their website.

What kind of new talent do we need in business today? How can we best prepare young citizens to participate in democracy? And how can undergraduate educators “blend” the liberal arts and business disciplines to best equip students for their roles as both managers and citizens? These questions motivated the launch of the Aspen Undergraduate Consortium in 2012 and have animated the Consortium’s convenings ever since.
