Brief Narrative: The goal of this project is to develop an Entrepreneurial Mindset Across Disciplines in CTE fields, as well as STEM, that have the potential to yield business ownership, partnerships, and corporate entities. There is a gap in contextualized small business/entrepreneurship certificates and degrees and a lack of experiential learning by doing. Students who desire business as a career and starting their own businesses need more opportunities for work-based learning. There is opportunity for each campus, across their disciplines to: •Embed and infuse small business/entrepreneurship curriculum into their programs/courses •Create certificates and degrees with emphasis on small business/entrepreneurship •Have work based learning opportunities through small business/entrepreneurship
