Institute, for Private
By DWIGHT MARTIN
A campus organization devoted to
assisting those who wish to undertake
bold, risky and important enterprises
will dedicate its new home on Oct.
Dr. Raleigh Tillman, director of
the Institute for Private Enterprise,
said the organization will occupy the
$8 million Kenan Center before the
offical ceremony. The center is
located on south campus near the
Dean E. Smith Student Activities
Its architecture is like that of a
modern English manor. It has a steep
roof, gables, a brick and limestone
facade and more than 50 windows.
The five-story building has two large
chimneys, one on each end.
When completed, the center's
Kenan Lounge, a large room with
30-foot ceilings, will have a marble
fireplace and contain a grand piano,

Institute is to assist entrepreneurs by

"Nothing is as risky as neuro
surgery." he said. "One must study
a long time to practice it."

Institute will assist those who wish
to study the entrepreneural process.
Another of the center's purposes
is to serve as a case history collection
for the nation's universities. Tillman
said. A national center is needed
because collecting individual entre
preneur' case histories is a "terribly
expensive process for one university."
"Basically we are a research center '
and we will provide short courses for
potentional entrepreneurs." he said.
The courses will provide informa
tion that will help entrepreneurs
avoid some pitfalls, he added.
Tillman said the center is not a
classroom building. "It was built to

The University will utilize some of
the center's space until its own
conference is constructed, he said.
The General Assembly has approved
funds for a campus-wide conference,
but construction has not begun.
In time the Institute will fill the
center up, he added.
The Institute will also bring res
ident executives to the center to serve
as instructive role models for business
adminstration students, Tillman said.
