The website supporting the Coleman Foundation Faculty Entrepreneurship Fellows Program recently experienced its 100,000 site visit. Created in August, 2010, the site (located at www.colemanfellows.com) is an element of the Coleman Foundation Entrepreneurship Community of Practice, comprised of college and university faculty who are advancing self-employment education across their campuses and in many departments and disciplines.
During the 2011-2012 academic year, more than 120 faculty members have been part of the program. Coleman Fellows contribute to the site by publishing articles which reflect their work developing or modifying courses in their discipline to include self-employment educational content. Project Directors who lead Fellows on their campuses provide additional contributions to the site. A forum/message board serves as a venue for ongoing dialogue on topics of interest.
In the three years of the program, over 150 fellowships have been awarded to faculty from 24 colleges and universities who teach in diverse departments ranging from Anthropology to Visual Arts. In addition, post-fellowship support has been provided to more than 100 faculty members. With more than 100,000 site visits, the web site has become a resource for individuals within as well as outside the Coleman Fellows Program to learn how self-employment education is delivered in many different academic settings.
