Creating Entrepreneurial Classrooms Program

The Creating Entrepreneurial Classrooms (CEC) initiative for faculty at The University of Akron, funded by The Burton D. Morgan Foundation, is to help students across disciplines build an entrepreneurial mindset and leverage creative problem solving as part of their career path or to build their own future.

CEC will award 10 innovative projects up to $10,000 each, to help students build an entrepreneurial mindset.

This project is the result of collaborations across Colleges at The University of Akron to help students participate in a culture of innovation and explore how entrepreneurial thinking will benefit those working on new and existing ventures.

The Creating Entrepreneurial Classrooms initiative, generously sponsored by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation, is seeking proposals from eligible UA faculty to support students by awarding up to $10,000 for projects that create innovative new experiences integrating an entrepreneurial mindset into the learning experiences of students across a range of disciplines.

Proposal due Oct. 5
