We have found a temporary home for the Center For Entrepreneurship!! The CFE will be sharing space with the Center for Teaching Excellence while we await the construction of the Emerging Technologies Complex on the campus of Northeast State. The two groups have much in common and we will be able to work together to further the goals of both groups. While the space is limited, we have enough room to hold meetings and small gatherings. The Center for Teaching Excellence is houses desktop computers, laptops, iPad's and two printers that are available for use.
On April 21, 2015, Tom Crosby the President of Pal's will conduct a seminar for students, faculty and staff. Pal's is a regional fast-food provider started by Pal Barger that is a national Malcolm Baldridge Quality Award winner. Pal's is also the recipient of two Tennessee Excellence Awards. The seminar will focus on how this local small business developed, implemented and maintains a world-class operation.
Additional seminars/workshops are being discussed. It is hoped that these will not be limited to the Northeast State campus community, but will be open to the public. We are exploring connections with local entrepreneurs to lead these gatherings. We hope to involve other resource groups in these seminars/workshops to reach a broader user base and to make the community aware of the resources available at Northeast State.
