Penn State Lehigh Valley students interview local entrepreneurs as part of Race and Ethic Relations fieldwork

Penn State Lehigh Valley students from the Race and Ethnic Relations class taught by Dr. Jennifer Parker Talwar spent February 24, 2016, at Velocity in Downtown Allentown interviewing Lehigh Valley entrepreneurs about global and local business practices, international trajectories, creative capital and work-family visions.  This project is a research-based initiative intended to reinvent the classroom in a real world environment, while bringing together students, business owners and community partners.

This semester, Dr. Parker’s class will be utilizing Penn State Lehigh Valley’s co-working space in Velocity for its business accelerator, Lehigh Valley LaunchBox, which is a signature program powered by Invent Penn State.
