The National Association of Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE), an organization focused on promoting entrepreneurship through community colleges, has announced that President Dr. Bill Seymour, of Cleveland State Community College, has taken its Presidents for Entrepreneurship Pledge. Through the pledge, presidents of community colleges throughout the country pledge to take five action steps that will increase their focus on entrepreneurship and the impact these colleges have on the economic well being of the communities they serve.
With the economy still lagging in many regions of the United States, more than 200 community colleges throughout the country have joined the entrepreneurship forum, and by doing so, have committed to playing a greater role in stimulating economic development in the communities they serve.
Dr. Bill Seymour commented, “I am very pleased to accept the NACCE President’s for Entrepreneurship Pledge. Cleveland State is dedicated to supporting the growth and development of business in our service area and advancing our economic development. Taking and acting on this pledge will further serve to strengthen our efforts and community partnerships.”
