Seeding Entrepreneurship Across Campus: Early Implementation Experiences of the Kauffman Campuses Initiative
Entrepreneurship has long been a fundamental aspect of American society, serving as an important contributor to economic growth. However, only recently has entrepreneurship begun to develop as an academic field in U.S. colleges and universities. The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation launched the Kauffman Campuses Initiative in eight U.S. universities to encourage campuswide expansion of entrepreneurship programs and activities. This report provides a cross-site analysis of implementation experiences during the beginning of the grants, based on information collected during the first round of site visits in spring and fall 2005 and a faculty survey in spring 2006.
