1 - 2 weeks availability
This poignant study presents a collection of research on entrepreneurship and community engagement. The context of this book is Syracuse University's award winning model of Scholarship in Action with its emphasis on sustainable campus-community entrepreneurial partnerships and its resultant 'Syracuse Miracle', the transformation that has occurred in the Central New York community thanks to the university's partnership with the community to drive social, environmental, and economic development. Broken into three engaging sections, this book introduces appraisals of technology entrepreneurship and community engagement; community engagement and entrepreneurship; and entrepreneurship, engagement, and new models of education. The first section includes chapters that focus on successful corporate university partnerships, programs to champion student technology companies, and new models for supporting technology transfer. Section two concentrates on topics including transforming a community law clinic to aid community entrepreneurs, supporting successful entrepreneurs in distressed communities, and engineering a community newspaper in partnership with local residents.
The final section includes analyses of services for entrepreneurs with disabilities and an innovative program that connects university students to provide assistance, factors that contribute to innovation and entrepreneurship among adults, and a new entrepreneurial program that provides teacher education. Academic Entrepreneurship and Community Engagement is well suited for both students and scholars, as well as for all those invested in pursuing innovative, progressive avenues of community engagement.
