Chaminade University’s Hogan Entrepreneurs celebrated the graduation and induction of its students on April 18, 2012. This marked the 10th graduation for a unique program that encourages students to use their entrepreneurial passion and academic achievements as means to contribute to their communities. The program’s motto continues to be "doing business things that make social sense; doing social things that make business sense."
The ceremony was held in the Mystical Rose Oratory on Chaminade’s Campus. Since its inception in 2002, the program has graduated approximately 250 student entrepreneurs.

The Hogan Program sponsors a job preparation workshop for the homeless, on campus, once a year in October. This year will be our 9th Homeless Workshop. There are usually about 25 participants who will spend the day with a volunteer Hogan Student, to prepare them for future employment. Time will be spent creating a resume, preparing for job interviews, and learning about employment resources available to them.
