Summer is quickly approaching and we wanted to briefly remind you of three engaging professional development opportunities that are available to you through our NACCE Institute this May and June. We look forward to connecting and learning with you on your entrepreneurial journey!
Entrepreneurship Specialist Certificate
May 31-July 22
Community colleges are interested in expanding their entrepreneurial services. Incubators and co-working spaces attract different community members to campus. The goal of the workshop is for attendees to understand what is required to launch and grow a successful incubator for their community. Attendees will leave with a comprehensive plan of action and a complete tool kit for implementation back to their campus.
Based on a decade of research and outreach, this course is the perfect professional development opportunity. You will have the guidance and a process to amp up your faculty to meet the entrepreneurship challenge, learn how to apply the entrepreneurial method to address challenges on your campus, and help facilitate a campus conversation about how to support and grow entrepreneurship on campus and in the community.
Social Entrepreneurship: Infusing Across Academic Disciplines at Community Colleges Online Course
June 13-July 22
This online experience will explore opportunities to engage the campus connecting curriculum, systems and the organization. Community colleges are natural incubators of social innovation because students are closer to the challenges within their own communities. Community college leaders consistently explore social innovation to address a myriad of socioeconomic challenges that students face and hinder student success. This course will cover:
Core principles of social entrepreneurship and innovation
How social entrepreneurship can be integrated in the classroom across academic disciplines
How leaders can apply principles of social innovation to address challenges on their own campus
Resources to incorporate into courses and strategic planning
This course is ideal for faculty from any discipline, deans and vice presidents who want to expand their knowledge and application of social innovation to better serve students, and directors and advisors who work directly with entrepreneurs in their own communities.
