Amy Schulz, Director, EWD/CTE
Feather River College
"Our entrepreneurship program started from nothing and has grown into a powerful program on campus with a direct impact on our local economic development through business starts and development. I can honestly say that we would not have an entrepreneurship program at Feather River College if it were not for NACCE. The network and resources that NACCE membership affords was instrumental in our success."
Andrew Lambert, Professor
Ivy Tech Community College - Bloomington
"NACCE has worked with me directly to grow a community engagement program within several business classes. More importantly, they have been able to reach out to other program leaders to find out what tools they might be able to implement from there."
