Stephanie Goldenberg knew she wanted to work at AACC when she was a student at Salisbury University. In 1993, she attended a retreat at AACC as part of Maryland Higher Education Commission’s Student Advisory Council and imagined herself working on campus one day. Today, Goldenberg is the academic chair for AACC’s Entrepreneurial Studies Institute (ESI).
With a previous professional background in cause-related marketing and project management, Goldenberg now spends her time creating innovative ways for students to turn their business ideas into a reality. Often called “Professor Amazing-berg” by a few of her students, she is known for being caring and invested in her students’ success. When students approach her with their next great business idea, Goldenberg will go out of her way to connect them with resources and other students.
What inspires her about AACC’s students? It’s their resiliency, motivation, creativity and ability to solve problems. “They genuinely want to learn and it motivates me to do all that I can so they have the knowledge and resources to achieve their goals,” Goldenberg said.
When she’s not helping her students achieve their goals, you can find Goldenberg planning her next Disney vacation, volunteering with the United Way of Central Maryland or taking photos on her nature walks.
