|September 2, 2010||View for printing|
Lending a helping hand to student entrepreneurs is a vital part of resuscitating the economy, University of Michigan Mary Sue Coleman wrote in a column published Monday by Forbes.
Coleman, recently appointed to serve as a co-chair of President Barack Obama's National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship, emphasized the importance of promoting entrepreneurial activities among students and said U-M was setting an example for the higher education community.
Universities, she said, need to support students and "what some might call their 'crazy ideas.'"
