IDEA Fellows

The WVU IDEA Fellows is a two year program where interested faculty from across the university submit proposals to either create a new course or modify an existing course to include principles of innovation, design and entrepreneurship. The courses are interdisciplinary in nature and are housed in various colleges across the university. Faculty Fellows are selected by competitive process and receive extensive training on teaching entrepreneurship. The faculty form a cohort and meet monthly to work on cross-disciplinary programming and act as champions for entrepreneurship across the campus.
