The Denison Launch Lab is unlike any other career center in the nation. Our cutting-edge career preparation, exploration and launch programs align the career goals and aspiration of students and recent graduates with the talent needs of today’s most well-established companies, disruptive start-ups and transformative non-profits.

We partner with pioneering entrepreneurs, leading ed tech companies, and successful professionals from wide-ranging industries to deliver programs that give students insight and exposure to the work world, in-demand skills, hands-on experiences, and mentorship and connections that last a lifetime. The Launch Lab also provides space and support for Denison faculty to connect their students and coursework to resources, experiences, and opportunities in Columbus.

During the semesters, the Launch Lab’s sole focus is on preparing Denison students for lifetimes of success. Between semesters, the Launch Lab’s new-model career launch experience is open to all liberal arts students from any college around the world.

And, it all happens in downtown Columbus, Ohio, the fastest growing metropolitan area in the Midwest. Columbus leads the way — in job, population, and GDP growth — and is home to some of the world’s most recognizable brands, groundbreaking startups, and cutting-edge research facilities.

About Denison Launch Lab

Preparing for LAUNCH

The Launch Lab’s innovative approach to career preparation recognizes that career success is a journey. It’s not about finding that perfect job and company right after college and staying there for 30 years. It’s about understanding your purpose and building an adaptable roadmap to help you lean into that purpose. It’s about developing agility and new skills over time to adapt to the changing career landscape or to follow an emerging career path. It’s recognizing that you’ll launch not just once, but many times throughout your career journey.
