With the addition of The Wheeler School, a private school in Providence, R.I., SUPA has extended its reach across six states: New York, New Jersey, Maine, Michigan, Massachusetts and now, Rhode Island.
Project Advance also has added four new SU courses to the curriculum: Calculus III (MAT 397); Introductory Physics (PHY 101 and 102); Latin (LAT 201, 310, and 320); and Web Design and Management (IST 263).
Introduction to Entrepreneurship (EEE 370), new to the program last year, will once again be offered in 2010-11. The course seeks to provide students with a solid foundation and understanding of the vital role played by entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in the 21st century global economy.
