We recently announced the winners of our 2018 Presidents for Entrepreneurship Pledge (PFEP) College of Excellence Award WinnersToday we want to highlight how College of DuPage (IL) is doing an outstanding job increasing entrepreneurs' engagement in community colleges. We asked nominator Peter James, Business Professor at the College of DuPage, to share his thoughts. 

Tell us how your college has demonstrated excellence in this area.

Through its College of DuPage Entrepreneurship Club (CODEC), its Emerging Entrepreneurs (E2) program and its honoring of Distinguished Alumni, the College of DuPage continues to partner with and recognize local and national entrepreneurs on its campus. By doing so, the College of DuPage increases the opportunity and awareness of entrepreneurship for its students, the institution itself and certainly, the surrounding community.

How do you measure and document success? 

Success is measured primarily by student and community interest, attendance and participation. For each event, the College attempts to increase opportunity and awareness. In addition, success is documented via videotaping, photography, and feedback from attendees. By doing so, interested individuals are able to review the content and experience via digital media (namely YouTube).
