 University Professors and the Entrepreneurial Spirit

Show Summary Details


The pressure of shrinking state budgets, uncertain returns on endowments, and the search for revenue producing course offerings and degree programs have made it important for academics to re-consider their roles in the university. This article discusses academic entrepreneurship as a mindset that attends to and promotes their commitments. It also identifies entrepreneurial characteristics that are related to habits of mind and enculturation of university faculty, as well as to those of musicians.
