Entrepreneur Yusuf Dahl has been named director of Lafayette’s IDEAL Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

Dahl will work with the campus community to develop a renewed direction for the program.

A technologist and proponent of entrepreneurship education, Dahl founded Milwaukee Metro Management, an affordable housing development and management company. It grew from a single two-family property in one of Milwaukee’s poorest zip codes to more than 200 residential and commercial units.

Dahl has been awarded fellowships from Google to expand wireless access in Boston and Tata Consultancy Services to work on emerging technology issues in Kolkata, India.

He was a graduate fellow at the Center for Information and Technology Policy at Princeton University, where he earned a Master of Public Administration degree. At Princeton, he taught social entrepreneurship and built community partnerships to provide experiential learning opportunities for students outside the classroom.

    Hello Yusuf, I met you at TEDx in Princeton. I have been a volunteer for Room to Read in NJ for 7 years. Room to Read was started by social entrepreneur John Wood in 2000 after leaving Microsoft. Room to Read focuses on literacy and gender equality in education in 14 countries. There are volunteer chapters on campuses around the country. If you have any interest in establishing one at Lafayette, please let me know if I can help. http://www.roomtoread.org
