Entrepreneurial thinking in higher education is not an original idea, but making it a core principal of higher education has taken off in the last decade. Academic institutions of the public trust are compelled to accelerate and apply innovation for economic and societal benefit. These aspirations are rooted with an entrepreneurial focus, are aligned with the goals of the modern university, and complement the disruptive environment in which higher education competes.
Register today to attend the E3 Conference – Education and Entrepreneurship as Economic Engines, coming to the EKU Center for the Arts on Thursday, November 19. Here, we will explore what our keynote speaker, Washington University in St. Louis Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Holden Thorp articulates as having a ‘…to-do list that includes the greatest problems of our time: cure diseases, deliver those cures; find and invent; inspire students; describe the world; and replace conflict with understanding’. We look forward to seeing you!
