The Hillman Entrepreneurs Program was one of just seven programs chosen to present a poster session at the 94th AACC Annual Convention in Washington, DC this April. Entitled "Closing the Gap with the Hillman Entrepreneurs Program," the poster session showcased the ways in which this program has been key in closing the gap in academic and entrepreneurial achievement by low-income and minority students.

Established through the generous gift by the Hillman Family Foundation, the Hillman Entrepreneurs Program offers a new model in education: an initiative targeted to students who have an interest in entrepreneurship and enthusiasm for starting a business venture or leading a company. The goal is to support, develop, and graduate ethical leaders who plan to energize and give back to their local communities.

The directors of this program, which reside at Montgomery College, Prince George's Community College and the University of Maryland College Park, developed a large poster that drew attention to the elements of this program as well as the students it serves; provided programmatic materials; and described the benefits of the program for students with a dream to become an entrepreneur or leader in the community. The Directors also shared the link between the Program goals and efforts to enrich the business community through our internship and mentorship activities and the focus on civic engagement.
