PENN STATE RECOGNIZED FOR EXCELLENCE IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP
EDUCATION

UNIVERSITY PARK, PA – The National Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers
(NCEC) recognized Penn State as one of two universities to win the NCEC Award for
Exceptional Activities in Entrepreneurship Across Disciplines. The award was given to
representatives from Penn State and co-winner Temple University at the 2006 NCEC
annual conference on Oct. 14, 2006.
       The College of Engineering contributes to Penn State’s focus on entrepreneurship
by offering the Engineering Entrepreneurship (E-SHIP) minor. The minor is aimed at
students interested in starting their own technically-based businesses or in bringing
innovation and creativity to existing companies. The Smeal College of Business; the
Huck Institute for Life Sciences; and the Colleges of Communications, Health and
Human Development and Agricultural Science also offer entrepreneurship-focused
programs.
       “I am continually invigorated by observing students become passionate about
their own opportunities to create companies, whether they are studying science,
engineering, architecture, Spanish or business,” said Anthony Warren, director of Penn
State’s Farrell Center for Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship. “That passion is a
promising sign for the economic future of the Commonwealth.”
       With nearly 150 universities as members, the National Consortium of
Entrepreneurship Centers connects established and emerging entrepreneurship centers to
continue the advancement of entrepreneurial excellence.
