New Coleman Entrepreneurship Fellows named at WSU
The Wichita State University Center for Entrepreneurship, W. Frank Barton School of Business, has named two new Coleman Faculty Entrepreneurship Fellows.
They join 10 other faculty members, named over the past five years, who work with the Center to include entrepreneurship and innovation content in courses they teach.
Lou Heldman, interim director of the Center for Entrepreneurship, said: “Every student – no matter their major – can benefit from exposure to the skills and mindset needed to create new businesses and add jobs to the economy. As a result of Coleman’s support, we have professors from across the university talking with their students about how to increase invention, discovery and economic opportunity.”
