What IPH… Adopting an entrepreneurial mindset can help academics succeed in their professional development?

Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - 2:00pm to 2:50pm

Warren O. Nash III is the Executive Director of The Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship (VACE) at the University of Kentucky. Previously he was Director of the Lexington Office of the Kentucky Innovation Network and has served as the deputy commissioner of the Department of Commercialization and Innovation.


New Faculty are given an office, a computer and teaching assignments, and are expected to develop a successful program of research. In many ways, each faculty position is its own ‘start-up’. Like start-ups, some succeed and some do not. Perhaps we can learn from the field of entrepreneur development how to better support the process of faculty development.


This free webinar is hosted by the UK Center for Innovation in Population Health. Our goal with our What IPH series is to present innovative ideas that can apply to the public health space. We invite all University of Kentucky faculty, staff, students, and the TCOM Collaborative to join us for our seminar series.
