Sierra Integrated Curriculum for Entrepreneurship


Professor Denise Bushnell (and Sierra Makerspaces team member) has worked with Professor Dennis Wingate (Business), Professor Anne Diamond (Businesss and Enactus Team Faculty Lead), and Jonathan Schwartz, Mathematics and Pre-Engineering teacher at Colfax HS to develop a series of courses increasing entrepreneurship education.  The coursework and certificates were presented to the North Far North Regional Consortium in early September 2018.

  •  Business 143 (Social Entrepreneurship) is approved for the Social and Behavioral Sciences GE section for AA/AS degrees.  It also meets and is approved for the Area D requirement for CSUs.
  • Business 143 is fully connected to ENACTUS and the Sierra College team has already defined their global project.  The team used a design thinking exercise to determine the project.  The ENACTUS team replaced Sierra’s Business Club and is student-led.
