Harris, E. Edward
This document provides resource listings and abstracts of entrepreneurship education programs currently being offered at the secondary and postsecondary levels (public and private) in Illinois. Projects included in the guide were chosen as a result of a survey of 3,000 schools in Illinois. The programs are listed in three sections: those offered by secondary schools, by community colleges, and by four-year colleges and universities. Each listing includes the name of the education agency, key administrators, key instructional personnel, contact person, agency, and address; program information (including course title, how course is taught, program objectives, instructional materials used, and plans for expansion); and student data (number enrolled annually, average enrollment by grade level, student recruitment, and existence of success stories). The catalog provides two-page descriptions of 38 secondary entrepreneurship programs, 40 community college programs, and 26 four-year college and university programs. (KC)
