Nice Faculty Fellows

Connecting campus, integrating entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is not owned by the College of Business; it should be across campus and the community. It also should not be limited to the idea of launching a business and making money. It can include innovation and creativity, as well.

That’s why we started the Nice Faculty Fellows: to integrate innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship into courses and research.

The first cohort of Nice Fellows will meet monthly for one year to share ideas on how to integrate innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship into their courses. They will also attend a conference with students who are exploring the same topic.

As a part of their fellowship, they will receive funding for course development, a cohort of fellow learners, and a platform to showcase their work.

The first cohort will help shape the program and identify the best ways to integrate innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship and to connect campus with the community.
