Hiram College was recently one of 15 colleges and universities in Northeast Ohio to receive a grant from the Burton D. Morgan Foundation aimed at bolstering the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The $10,000 grant was given to support a microgrant program in 2022 to drive student-led ventures. Hiram students who complete the core classes and approved electives for the entrepreneurship minor, along with their Business Plan Practicum, will be eligible to receive money from the grant.  

Hiram’s Burton D. Morgan Entrepreneurship Center integrates the concepts of entrepreneurship into interdisciplinary curricular and extra-curricular activities that help students develop skills such as critical thinking, curiosity, ethical awareness, ability to write and speak clearly, ability to draw and synthesize knowledge from diverse sources and apply to diverse uses, and insight into the human experience. Housed in East Hall with the Entrepreneurship Residential Learning Community, the Center has a designated lecture hall, an incubator classroom, offices, and meeting spaces.
