In 2008 Cayuga Community College embarked on its campaign to offer entrepreneurial studies as part of its commitment to offer real-world learning experiences for students. With financial support from the Fred L. Emerson Foundation, Stardust Entrepreneurial Institute, First Niagara Bank Foundation, and the Ewing Marion Kaufmann Foundation, Cayuga Community College has garnered substantial support for its entrepreneurial course offerings and enterprises.
Students that take part in these initiatives are able to learn first-hand what it takes to embark on a business or non-profit. Courses in entrepreneurship are offered for both credit and non-credit under Community Education.
