The Coleman Fellows are faculty from across the campus at Saint Louis University who are infusing their courses and academic programs with entrepreneurship training and education for their students. Following the idea of the Foundation, they promote entrepreneurship as self-employment through business ownership which has significant elements of risk, control and reward. The Foundation awards grants to Fellows to develop and deploy these entrepreneurship materials, and offers several venues where the faculty can share and promote their efforts. These include:

  • Coleman Fellows' Pre-Conference Programs before the annual Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (www.c-e-o.org) or Self-Employment in the Arts (www.selfemploymentinthearts.com) conferences and
  • Monthly Coleman Fellows Coffee Cup Webinars.

Today there are more than 120 Fellows at more than two dozen campuses across the US. They represent nearly every discipline found in the modern university. SLU's own Fellows and their projects are given below:

  • David Barnett, (Biomedical Engineering, Parks), Adding entrepreneurship to the Biomedical Instrumentation Course.
  • Martin Brief (Fine & Performing Arts, A&S), Entrepreneurship modules for Senior Design
