First year student survey results show that over 60% of CSB (College of Saint Benedict) first year students and over 75% of SJU (Saint John's University) first year students report that "being successful in my own business" is very important or essential - this is much higher than the national average. Understanding the entrepreneurial mindset and offering entrepreneurial options within your courses can tap into this energy and engage students in the classroom in new ways. This session covered how to spot and engage entrepreneurial students, how to incorporate social and marketplace entrepreneurship in course assignments including examples from a broad spectrum of disciplines, and provided an overview of the resources of the Donald McNeely Center for Entrepreneurship available to faculty and students.
