Bruce_KingmaWhat do iSchool programs in entrepreneurship and innovation look like?  From 2007-2012, there was a transformative shift in education at Syracuse University and in the iSchool at SU.  Entrepreneurship and innovation became a signature of the campus and the iSchool.  During this period 165 programs in entrepreneurship and innovation were developed including new curriculum, centers, corporate and community partnerships, and support services for students, faculty, veterans, and community members.  Programs emphasized experiential education by helping students to start new for-profit or nonprofit ventures, or by enabling students to innovate at their job or internship.  Professor Kingma’s talk  explores the programs in entrepreneurship and innovation education in the iSchool at Syracuse University.  This talk is part of the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS) colloquium series.

Biography of the Speaker

Bruce Kingma is an economist, academic entrepreneur, and the Dodson Visiting Professor in the iSchool at UBC this fall.  He is also a professor in the iSchool and in the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University.  From 2007-2012 Kingma served as the associate provost for entrepreneurship and innovation at Syracuse and the principal investigator for the $3 million Kauffman Campus Initiative (KCI) grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.   He is also a researcher on the LIBValue project exploring the return on investment of academic libraries. Kingma was awarded the Leavey Award for Excellence in Private Enterprise Education (2011) for the Raymond von Dran Innovation and Disruptive Entrepreneurship Accelerator.  He was awarded the Sloan Consortium Award for Excellence in Online Teaching and Learning (2006) and the American Distance Education Consortium National Award for Excellence in Distance Education (2008) for the Web-based Information Science Education Consortium.  He is the editor and author of Academic Entrepreneurship and Community Engagement: Scholarship in Action and the Syracuse Miracle (Edward Elgar, 2011).
