UNC campuses are finding creative ways to "teach" entrepreneurship and innovation to campus-based students and lifelong students, preparing them for a world where they will be challenged to invent new things and think in new ways more than ever. Following are some examples of how they are doing that:
UNC-Chapel Hill has worked to successfully expand entrepreneurship beyond the business school and across campus into the College of Arts and Sciences and professional schools.
UNC Wilmington is working to identify well trained scientists who have new marine biotechnology ideas and teach them how to translate research into business opportunities.
