Creating a University Driven "Ingepreneurial" Ecosystem in West Baltimore: A Strategy for Rust Belt Revitalization
Williams, Ronald C.; Klugh, Elgin L.
Metropolitan Universities, v28 n2 p103-123 Spr 2017
The legacy of deindustrialization and associated underemployment continues to plague many former industrial communities. In these spaces, universities serve as anchors providing gateways for individual economic empowerment, and as "brain centers" charged with generating solutions for societal problems. This paper explores the development of "The Center for Strategic Ingepreneurship" (CSI) at Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland. Strategic Ingepreneurship is seen here as a practical, innovative, solution-based approach to address underperforming job creation. The Center will serve as a university-based entity to facilitate the development and dissemination of ingepreneurial knowledge and skills through research, teaching, and practice.
