SYRACUSE, NY -- Bruce Kingma, professor and associate dean in Syracuse
University's School of Information Studies (iSchool), has been appointed to
the new position of SU associate provost for entrepreneurship and
innovation. The appointment -- made by Vice Chancellor and Provost Eric F.
Spina -- is effective immediately.

As associate provost for entrepreneurship and innovation, Kingma will
provide leadership for the Syracuse Campus-Community Entrepreneurship
Initiative -- a collaborative partnership made possible by a five-year, $3
million grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The Syracuse
Campus-Community Entrepreneurship Initiative builds on the key tenets of
Scholarship in Action by encouraging faculty and students throughout Central
New York to work with communities of experts across disciplines and
geographic boundaries to foster entrepreneurial education and innovation in
three key areas -- technology, neighborhood and arts entrepreneurship --
while utilizing three experiential sites in the region: the Syracuse Center
of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems headquarters; The
Warehouse and the Arts Quarter in downtown Syracuse; and the South Side
Innovation Center.

Kingma will work with SU and partner institutions to develop new curricula
and curricular elements, enable research, and facilitate experiential
learning and that integrates the concept of entrepreneurship and innovation
across disciplines.

Kingma will remain as associate dean for the iSchool through the arrival of
the school's new dean; current dean Raymond F. von Dran steps down from his
position in August 2007.
