The Coleman Foundation Faculty Entrepreneurship Fellows program ( extends self-employment education across 17 university and college campuses.  Faculty Fellows are typically professors from outside the school of business at their institution.  They engage in the development of courses and leadership of projects in support of entrepreneurship education on their campus, inspiring students in non-business disciplines to gain self-employment skills and experience.  For the 2012-2013 academic year, 49 Coleman Foundation Faculty Entrepreneurship Fellows from departments all across campus will create new courses within their disciplines or modify existing ones to incorporate elements of self-employment education.
