Academic Entrepreneurship
Facilitator: Kerry Ann Rockquemore
People often ask how I went from a frustrated tenured professor to successful entrepreneur in a short period of time. In this 4-week course, I'll explain the pathway from great idea to up-and-running, with special attention to the most common errors that academics make. Whether you're thinking about starting a new initiative on campus, creating a side-business to increase your income, starting a movement for change, or creating an exit strategy from your university, this course will clarify the necessary steps to move from desire to action.
Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD is President and CEO of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. Her scholarship has focused on interracial families, biracial identity, and the politics of racial categorization. She is the author of two important books: Beyond Black and Raising Biracial Children, as well as over two dozen articles and book chapters on multiracial youth. After Dr. Rockquemore became a tenured professor, her focus shifted to improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for writing productivity and work/life balance. Her award-winning work with under-represented faculty led to the publication of her most recent book: The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul. Dr. Rockquemore provides workshops for faculty at colleges across the U.S., writes an advice column for Inside Higher Ed, and works with a select group of faculty each semester in the Faculty Success Program.
