Hiram College faculty voted on and approved five new courses for the new entrepreneurship minor and 17 new courses for the nursing major.
Courses approved include Entrepreneurship 610, which requires minors to participate in service learning and to implement residence hall programs for their peers.
Faculty also approved Nursing 201, among other nursing courses, which focuses on professional aspects of nursing with particular emphasis on written and oral communication and knowledge dissemination. Hiram’s first cohort of nursing students, who started in the fall of 2007, will begin taking nursing courses later this year.
Hiram is growing. And that growth is reflected around campus – from the Centers of Excellence to new faculty members. The signs of growth are emerging with new facilities to accompany growth in academic programs, too.
Hiram’s new residence hall will be home to the Burton D. Morgan Entrepreneurship Center. The building will combine both the residential facilities and the entrepreneurship academic and co-curricular facilities, making the entrepreneurship program truly integrated into campus life.
Hiram is in the midst of renovating the second floor of Teachout-Price Hall, which will become the home of the nursing program.
