Dr. Tabakian is the author of “The Academic Entrepreneur: An Examination Of Factors That Influence Academic Entrepreneurialism Among Community College Faculty.” This groundbreaking study is a testament to the positive impact of academic entrepreneurial faculty. Encouraging academic entrepreneurialism among community college faculty requires institutional policies that focus on the fundamental issues of: recruiting, retaining, and evaluating community college faculty.
