This initial work was enabled by a $4.5M grant from the Kauffman Foundation.Most prominently, the Academy created the Faculty Fellows Program across the Urbana-Champaign campus, providing support to 38 faculty to create 60+ courses with entrepreneurship foci. These courses are taken by approximately 8,000 students per year, and have supported generations of entrepreneurial students. These students have in turn helped design, run, and make successful a host of Academy-supported programs for entrepreneurial learning: venture competitions, pitch days, hackathons, student organizations, and more, which have helped propel UIUC into the top 10 educational institutions in the world for producing venture capital backed entrepreneurs.In the last three years, AEL has undergone a renaissance, attracting new staff and resources as it fills a new set of critical gaps in entrepreneurship on behalf of the University's students and broader community.
