Judith Albers

Judy Albers received an appointment to the VanArsdale Chair in Entrepreneurship at Geneseo in the Fall of 2013.  Since then, she has introduced a comprehensive program in entrepreneurship to the university including courses, workshops, and events which are open to all upper level students in all majors.  The program also involves student participation in local, regional and state-wide business plan competitions and national conferences such as the Clinton Global Initiative through CIDD.  Further, she has established an incubator program where students grow their businesses during the summer months and follow-on semesters.  The support of highly experienced mentors from both on- and off-campus provides huge value to the students and is vital to the students’ education and achievement.  Collaborating with more advanced regional entrepreneurial programs such as those at High Tech of Rochester (HTR) has also been instrumental in student success.
