Reimagining Entrepreneurship: An Integrated Pathway for Creative and Ethical Venturing

The development of an academic minor open to all undergraduates on the theme of creativity and ethical venturing.

This project is grounded in the recognition that the humanities have a foundational role to play in cultivating students’ capacity to tackle the issues, problems, and challenges facing modern society in creative and innovative ways. We propose a new academic minor in Creativity and Ethical Venturing (CEV) which connects the humanities’ contributions to creative thinking and ethical reflection with the applied knowledge of business and entrepreneurial education. The CEV Minor is designed to cultivate students’ ability to envision and engage problems and opportunities, conduct interdisciplinary inquiry and research, ideate and develop creative solutions, and realize these solutions as potential ventures. The goal is to provide students with an integrated educational pathway that guides them through the complete process from developing their creative and collaborative capacities to realizing ethical and sustainable ventures which yield positive social impact.
