The Founding of Franklin Pierce University—An Entrepreneur’s Approach To Education is more than a simple historic memoir. Readers will learn how an ambitious young man in the early 1950s pursued his dream of establishing a four-year liberal arts college by identifying start-up funding at a local Rotary meeting, and grew this institution with drive, edication, and ingenuity, while simultaneously pursuing his own education at Boston University and raising a family with five children.

Frank S. DiPietro, Ed.D.
Published by: A Book's Mind, September 2012
Soft cover, 208 pages

We had been in business only five years and received accreditation on the first application…we were not an endowed college—we had succeeded with entrepreneurial ingenuity. We had no endowments, no tenured professors, and precious few scholarships—all the costly elements people hear of and tend to believe necessary to create a college were simply not there.

The Founding of Franklin Pierce University—An Entrepreneur’s Approach To Education is more than a simple historic memoir. Readers will learn how an ambitious young man in the early 1950s pursued his dream of establishing a four-year liberal arts college by identifying start-up funding at a local Rotary meeting, and grew this institution with drive, dedication, and ingenuity, while simultaneously pursuing his own education at Boston University and raising a family with five children.

In this book, Dr. Frank S. DiPietro tells this colorful tale with input from students and former colleagues who were among the pioneers who helped Franklin Pierce College achieve accreditation in its fifth year of existence—an unheard of feat. This book reads like a how-to-guide for anyone considering starting a school of any level, or for anyone looking for motivation and guidance for beginning a new business. DiPietro emphasizes how sticking to a well-thought out mission, establishing strong strategy, and employing sound tactics (hiring the right people, etc.) can help anyone achieve their ideal—but first you must learn how to learn and how to live.

Franklin Pierce has since gained university status, and stands proudly on that same hill overlooking the Pearly Pond in Rindge, New Hampshire. In 2012, Franklin Pierce University will celebrate its 50th year.
