Entrepreneur recently ran an article on the Chicagoland Entrepreneurship Education for People with Disabilities (CEED), a joint project of UIC Business Professor Maija Renko and Disability and Human Development Professor Sarah Parker Harris. Funded in part by a grant from the Coleman Foundation, CEED will begin bridging entrepreneurship training with service providers from disability community agencies and small business development centers throughout the state, with the goal of closing resource gaps for entrepreneurs with disabilities and of training service providers to better support an individual’s entrepreneurial activity.

Business News Daily covered a recent study of leadership styles published by Professors Sandy Wayne and Robert Liden with co-authors Chenwei Liao and Jeremy Meuser. The study, titled “Servant Leadership and Serving Culture: Influence on Individual and Unit Performance” (available here), focused on management styles in the restaurant industry, and found that managers who prioritized their employees’ needs over their own – so-called “servant leaders” – contributed directly to superior business and employee performance. Stories on the study also ran at Business Review USA and Human Resources Executive.
