Entrepreneurial
College of the Future

The Joy of Discovery Begins!

NACCE is launching 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. 

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.

Colleges in the pilot receive free consulting, mentoring, travel and conference support valued at $25,000+ and the opportunity to pitch for a share of $150,000 at #NACCE2022 in Boston in October!

The vision of this project is to create new resources that NACCE will expand, scale and offer to our network of member colleges across the nation in 2023 - 2025.

Participating colleges will be announced during the week of April 25th in celebration of Community College Month!
