Hiram College

Burton D. Morgan Entrepreneurship Center

Home of Integrated Entrepreneurship at Hiram

What happens in the classroom is only part of the educational process. What happens outside the classroom is just as valuable to the educational experience.

Opened in 2008, the 7,100 sq. ft. Burton D. Morgan Entrepreneurship Center is located within East Hall, Hiram’s newest suite-style residence hall.

East Hall combines both the residential facilities and the entrepreneurship academic and co-curricular facilities in the same building, making the entrepreneurship program truly integrated into campus life.

Hiram students with a strong interest in entrepreneurship can apply to become a member of the Entrepreneurship Residential Learning Community (ERLC) and will be given preference for room assignment in East Hall. The ERLC provides a supportive environment that encourages creativity and innovation in the pursuit of entrepreneurial interests.

Made possible through a generous grant from the Burton D. Morgan Foundation, the Center honors Burton D. Morgan, a successful entrepreneur, who started or helped to start dozens of businesses during his lifetime.
