Funding available for bringing entrepreneurship into courses
As part of an ongoing effort to incorporate entrepreneurship topics throughout the curriculum, the Office of Technology Transfer and Innovation Partnerships and the New York State Center of Excellence are sponsoring an “Entrepreneurship Across the Curriculum” (ExC) initiative.
Up to five $1,000 awards will be offered for faculty with continuing appointments to revise an existing course to include an entrepreneurship-related component, or to include a significant entrepreneurial component in a new course being developed.
Interested participants are invited to submit a short proposal (two to three pages, double-spaced). The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, June 15. All proposals should be submitted to ExC@binghamton.edu no later than 5 p.m. that day.
More information can be found at http://go.binghamton.edu/ExC.

‘Streetcar,’ ‘Caesar,’ ‘Horrors’ highlight Theatre Dept. season
The Theatre Department’s 2010-11 mainstage season will feature four “audience choice” productions.
Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire will be on the Anderson Center Chamber Hall stage Oct. 15-24. Little Shop of Horrors comes to the Watters Theater from Nov. 12-21. Michael Frayn’s Noises Off! will be at the Watters Theater from March 4-13, and William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar concludes the season from April 29-May 8 at Watters Theater.
The department will be adding another Sunday matinee performance to each show in its upcoming season as well as a new feature for those attending that performance: post-matinee talkbacks. After the first Sunday matinee performance, the audience will be given the opportunity to ask questions, express opinions or just listen as the artists discuss the play’s issues, themes and their own artistic processes.
The additional Sunday matinees will be at 2 p.m. Oct. 17 (A Streetcar Named Desire), Nov. 14 (Little Shop of Horrors), March 6 (Noises Off!) and May 1 (Julius Caesar).
