Entrepreneurship Across the Curriculum
As part of an ongoing effort to incorporate entrepreneurship topics throughout the curriculum at Binghamton University, the office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Partnerships and the New York State Center of Excellence are sponsoring a new Entrepreneurship Across the Curriculum (ExC) initiative.
The call for proposals for Entrepreneurship Across the Curriculum is now open. As part of an ongoing effort to incorporate entrepreneurship topics throughout the curriculum at Binghamton University, the Office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Partnerships and New York State Center of Excellence are sponsoring the next “Entrepreneurship Across the Curriculum” (ExC) initiative. Awards of $1,000 will be offered for faculty with continuing appointments to significantly revise an existing course to include an entrepreneurship-related component, or to include a significant entrepreneurial component in a new course being developed.
Admissions will be accepted on a rolling basis.. All proposals should be submitted to ExC@binghamton.edu. Proposal guidelines can be found here. The ExC Steering Committee will review the proposals and successful applicants will be notified by April 15. The awardees will receive $1,000 expense accounts to assist with the planning and implementation of the proposed course. Up to five awards may be made in this round of competition.
Past winners shared their experiences and discussed their innovative approaches to entrepreneurship and how they guided students outside the normal boundaries of typical entrepreneurial thinking to include government and non-profit possibilities, along with the success of crossing curriculums at a workshop on October 11, 2012.. A video of the workshop can be viewed here.
