Shipley Center for Innovation
About the Shipley Center
The Shipley Center was established through the generosity of Charles R. HD'84 and Lucia Shipley to promote student learning and development in leadership, teamwork and entrepreneurship. Since its inception, the center has served as a valuable community resource, fostering relationships between local businesses and nonprofits and assisting in the development of new ideas.
The Shipley Center continues to play an important role in startup culture across northern New York. Today, it serves as a primary hub for economic development, capitalizing on emerging technologies developed at Clarkson and throughout the region to create cutting-edge ventures for future solutions nationwide.
