PROFESSOR SAMANTHA PRINCE RECEIVES COMMENDATION FOR COMPLETING AFFORDABLE COURSE TRANSFORMATION
January 2022 — Professor Samantha J. Prince has received commendation from Penn State University for creating free open-source materials for her Entrepreneurship Law: Company Creation course through a grant received from the Affordable Course Transformation at Penn State (ACT@PSU ) program. The Affordable Course Transformation is a grant-based, affordable course transformation program for faculty teaching at all Penn State locations who wish to transform a course to displace high cost published materials.
Professor Prince was commended for the "time, talent, and expertise that she dedicated to creating dynamic, relevant, and engaging open and affordable course materials that demonstrates her commitment to ensure her students have the opportunity to access a high-quality educational experience," which aligns with the One Penn State 2025 Vision.
ACT@PSU is a provost-funded grant program designed to expand access to higher education through affordable course materials by developing openly licensed course materials that have the potential to break down barriers of affordability and accessibility not only for students in our Penn State Community, but also for students throughout the world.
Professor Samantha Prince is an Assistant Professor of Law and Director of Legal Analysis & Writing at Dickinson Law. She has a Master of Laws in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center, and was a partner in a regional law firm where she handled transactional matters that ranged from an initial public offering to regular representation of a publicly-traded company. Most of her clients were small to medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs, including start-ups. An expert in entrepreneurship law, she established the Dickinson Law entrepreneurship program, is an advisor for the Entrepreneurship Law Certificate that is available to students, and is the founder and moderator of the Inside Entrepreneurship Law blog.
