The ASU Kern Project is a partner in the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN), a collaboration of hundreds of engineering faculty nationwide educating engineering students with an entrepreneurial mindset so they can create personal, economic and societal value through a lifetime of meaningful work. In addition to the traditional technical skillset, student learning is enriched with an entrepreneurial mindset that fosters curiosity, connections, and the creation of value — the 3 C’s.

The next call for proposals begins August 17, and the submission deadline is September 6, 2016. The KEEN Professorship is open to all Fulton faculty, including tenured, tenure-track, lecturers and adjunct instructors.
