Since 1997 entrepreneurial thinking has been taught, applied and refined during coursework throughout the undergraduate curricula in classes from art to math to theatre. In Connections, a required core curriculum course for all freshmen, students are introduced to entrepreneurship and encouraged to develop a plan to "be an entrepreneur of your career."
In 2009, with the support of Daniel J. Wukich, the University created the Wukich Center for Entrepreneurial Opportunities to coordinate, support and enhance all entrepreneurial activities on campus.
