The Center for Leadership and Entrepreneurship (CLEI) is the directing body of the Roanoke College Innovation Challenge (RCIC). Every year the CLEI develops three challenges for the RCIC, and recruits Roanoke students to meet these challenges. The CLEI provides opportunities for business and economics students to help them build connections with businesses of the Roanoke Valley.
Students in the Fed Challenge have a mere 20 minutes to present a well-researched summary of the current economic situation. They also propose actions that the Federal Reserve Bank should take to help improve the economy.
