The NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic and Poole College welcomed Haley Huie as professor of practice and director of the clinic, effective April 1.
Huie brings a wide range of industry experience, beginning as a journalist in Northern Virginia, as a consultant and educator in higher education, and as a business and strategy consultant for a West Coast school group. Most recently, she spent her time in student programs at NC State in her role as director of experiential learning, where she had the opportunity to build NC State’s living learning community for student entrepreneurs. She has led other signature programs such as the Entrepreneurship Garage, Jump Start summer camp and helped launch the annual Make-A-Thon sustainability challenge on campus.
“Poole College and the Department of Management, Innovation & Entrepreneurship are delighted to have Haley Huie join us as Director of the Entrepreneurship Clinic,” said Jon Carr, Department Chair and Professor of Entrepreneurship. “One of the great things we hope to see from her role is a much stronger engagement with other faculty at colleges and departments that are interested in exploring entrepreneurial issues for their students.”

“She will focus her attention on building bridges with our students as they go beyond their academic experiences and will be a strong advocate for the Andrews Launch Accelerator.”
In her role as Director, Huie will work with partner organizations to create projects within the clinic to provide students with practical opportunities to apply entrepreneurial skills to create value for our community through the MIE 410, 418 and 419 courses she teaches. During the summer she will lead the Summer Andrews Launch Accelerator and spend the majority of her time in the community supporting the local innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem through mentoring, venture coaching, service work and program delivery.
“I’ve enjoyed working with everyone at Poole during my time at NC State,” Huie said. “This is a dynamic college full of talented, bright and hard-working scholars, professionals and passionate people who care about delivering exceptional programs. I have also really enjoyed interacting with the Poole students during the courses I teach – these students are bright and extremely motivated and I hope to contribute to the Poole student experience.”

Huie is a graduate of NC State, having earned a bachelor’s degree in public relations and journalism from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. She earned a Masters of Leadership in Higher Education from the American Intercontinental University, where she combined a love of education with a business background.
Outside of the Entrepreneurship Clinic, Huie has a two-year-old girl who keeps her busy. She and her husband, whom she met while working at a cooking school, enjoy food, wine and gardening on the weekends, and take advantage of the great outdoors by hiking.
