This Year’s Theme Is “Sharing Best Practices: Creating Pathways

Through Entrepreneurship Education”


SPRINGFIELD, MA – August 4, 2009 – The National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) will hold its third Symposium for Community College Entrepreneurship Educators (S-CCEE #3) October 11, 2009, in Chicago, Illinois. This annual event for faculty at community colleges is designed to highlight innovative ways in which to teach entrepreneurship in both the credit and credit free arenas. This year’s Symposium is being held in conjunction with NACCE’s annual conference, which runs from October 11-14, 2009.


“This event provides a forum for entrepreneurship faculty to network and an opportunity for them to acquire new tools to educate and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs,” says NACCE Executive Director, Heather Van Sickle. “Our first two symposia have been extremely productive for attendees. For example, the first symposium resulted in the formation of a partnership between community colleges in the U.S. and England that is working to develop a business studies degree that gives community college students an opportunity to experience how businesses operate in different cultures.”


The theme of S-CCEE #3 is “Sharing Best Practices: Creating Pathways Through Entrepreneurship Education.” The day’s agenda will include an interactive, hands-on presentation by Tina Sterling of TC Strategies, Inc. and Donna Duffey of Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, KS. They will share a “how-to” tool for community colleges to begin to implement and to grow entrepreneurship initiatives. The content, which provides a nine-step approach, is based on years of experience working with and for higher education throughout the country to develop entrepreneurship initiatives.

Registration is available via the NACCE Web site at or call 413-306-3131 with questions. The cost for NACCE members and non members is $75.



NACCE connects community college administrators and faculty with knowledge and successful practices regarding entrepreneurial thinking, entrepreneurship education, and student business incubation. NACCE holds an annual conference, hosts a dynamic list-serv, develops web resources such as shared entrepreneurship curricula and syllabi for faculty, creates guides in beginning and sustaining entrepreneurship and student business incubation programs, as well as, tips for grant proposals specific to entrepreneurial endeavors at community colleges.
