College of the Future
The Joy of Discovery Begins!
NACCE launched a pilot to create the Entrepreneurial College of the Future with fifteen or our nation's leading community colleges. This bold new initiative will harness teams of three leaders at each college who will work together and with other colleges to tackle challenges and opportunities on their campuses and in their communities. We will work with a team of experts to identify best practices that will be shared with the NACCE membership through a database of innovative practices. View the press release here.
Additionally, 65 colleges have signed on to co-create a national database of best innovative practices that will be unveiled at NACCE's national conference in Boston, MA on October 2-5, 2022.
The pilot focuses on the following areas:
- WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT - aligning with employer needs and creating one's own job;
- FUNDRAISING - moving beyond scholarships to big community-driven intiatives;
- STUDENT SUCCESS - increasing enrollment and retention; and,
- SILO BUSTING - increasing engagement and retention of college personnel.
