The entrepreneurial community college
Community colleges are becoming more entrepreneurial in their operational strategies. This entrepreneurism trend is partially in response to declining financial resources from traditional funding sources alongside increasing demands.
In the face of many challenges, community colleges have adopted new ways of thinking and acting. Researchers note a number of strategies in their definition of entrepreneurship: strategic alliances, business and industry training, programming, foundations, fund-raising and friend-raising, outsourcing, and legislative lobbying. For these strategies to be successful, they usually involve cost-sharing and profit-generating.
