Abstract:     
In 2003 and 2006, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation awarded universities funding to provide access to entrepreneurship education to students of multiple disciplines. Syracuse University, along with other noted universities such as the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. participated in the initiative (“Initiative”). By funding the Initiative, the Foundation awarded millions of dollars to universities to make entrepreneurship education available across their campuses, enabling any student, regardless of discipline, to participate in entrepreneurship training.

On the surface, this is a book about how Syracuse University, one of the country’s largest universities, partnered with the Kauffman Foundation to expand the inclusion of entrepreneurship into its curriculum. However, upon closer reflection, the book also is about a large university’s exploration of its involvement with, responsibility to, and impact on, its surrounding community, a university’s challenge to its faculty to change the way they teach, and a university’s willingness to accept risk in its pursuit of those goals.
