The Engrossed Entrepreneurial Campus: What the Academy and the Economy Need Now

Author: 

Stevenson, Joseph Martin and Mary M. White

Credentials: 

PhD; Dean, Jackson State University, School of Education, Executive PhD Program

Universities and colleges are increasingly recognized as having a key role in national and regional development processes (Goddard et al 1994 ;Keane and Allison,1999;Chatterton&Goddard 2000). The role of universities in this respect is likely to further increase given the development of a “knowledge-intensive” economy and society. Entrepreneurialism and venture capitalism have served as the historical backbone and economic back drop for this country’s past, present and future prosperity.
