March 2010 Report for Coleman Grant

Posted By Bogusia Wojciechowska, Thursday, April 08, 2010

The Community Center for Entrepreneurship, Bunker Hill Community College

  • We continue to plan our collaboration with the Young Entrepreneurs Alliance (YEA):
    • On May 7th BHCC faculty, staff and students will be attending the YEA team-building event at Madison Park High School, Boston. This will be a case study-based exercise (on topic around staffing and H.R. for a start-up company) that will engage a select gathering of 12 YEA students, 12 students from Bunker Hill Community College, and 24 "half-day mentors" (faculty, staff, and business professionals from BHCC and the Boston business community). We are also discussing the duplication of the YEA model at BHCC by creating a student run graphic design business on campus. The hope is that BHCC’s relationship with Madison Park will result in the high school entrepreneurs coming to BHCC for their degree program and continuing as entrepreneurs on our campus. Their experience will be a great value to running the business at BHCC. This is such a great pathway from high school to community college. This could become a national model for high school/community college collaboration.
  • We are establishing a chapter of the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO) using remaining Hughes Foundation Grant funds.
  • We are designing lesson plans and materials for 3 week Summer High School Student Curriculum. The summer camp will include field trips, guest speakers and numerous other activities relating to entrepreneurship. The students will also work on their oral and written communication skills. We are reviewing MIT Open Courseware, Babson College Entrepreneurship program, Suffolk University Entrepreneurship program and Harvard Business Review content for potential entrepreneurship curriculum exercises and class presentation content. More details will be available next month.
  • We now have a Linked In page as well as a Facebook presence.
  • Faculty has started to submit student reflections relating to entrepreneurship. These ‘reflections’ are multi-media, as the graphic design students are contributing materials from their class. They have designed logos and other marketing materials which we will include in our published reflections. It’s great to see how students from across the college are excited about this publication!
