The Lowell Stahl Center for Entrepreneurship & Real Estate (Center) was established in October 2006, with a gift from Lowell Stahl. The Center, since its inception has been to serve as a catalyst to encourage and support students interested in entrepreneurial and real estate activities. In addition, it has served as an opportunity for alumni and community stakeholders to engage through networking and mentoring with our students and faculty. The Center continues to establish itself in the broader community where a blend of academic programming, faculty expertise and leaders of industry, are able to come together to pursue and support the growth of entrepreneurial initiatives.


The mission of the Stahl Center for Entrepreneurship and Real Estate is to instill entrepreneurial thinking at Lewis University and to create a community of practitioners with a lifelong commitment to achieving social and economic progress through entrepreneurship.


Entrepreneurship is the willingness to take risks and develop, organize and manage a business venture in a competitive global marketplace that is constantly evolving. An entrepreneurial spirit of innovation and ambition is essential to the process. Entrepreneurs are pioneers, leaders, innovators and inventors. They are dreamers and most importantly-doers.

The Stahl Center for Entrepreneurship and Real Estate equips students with the knowledge, skills, and experiences needed to become successful entrepreneurs.
