encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship across the curriculum and engaging all students in this

& Applied Science, Graduate School of Education, Perelman School of Medicine, Penn Center for
Innovation (commercialization and entrepreneurship for faculty and staﬀ), Weiss Tech House,
There are almost too many to list! The university now oﬀers an Entrepreneurship Minor that is
open to all students, regardless of their major. So theoretically at least, all colleges oﬀer some form of
entrepreneurship activity. The more involved colleges/departments include: Arts & Letters, Business,
Communication Arts, Computer Science & Engineering, Horticulture, and Music.
There are many institutional organizations involved in the entrepreneurial experience at Florida

over the last couple of years. During early 2016 a coordinating organization (Executive Director
of Jim Moran School and the EIR Council) has begun to lead the university’s charge to develop
entrepreneurial thinking across the university.
