Faculty and staff are welcome to attend upcoming KEEN lunch-and-learn workshops. These workshops will highlight ways that the entrepreneurial mindset and KEEN framework are being integrated into student experiences on campus and will allow attendees to brainstorm ways to apply this mindset to their courses or programs.  

Learn more about KEEN at Missouri S&T  

Lunch will be provided at each workshop for attendees who register at least two business days before the session. All workshops will be held in Room 317 of Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall.  

Register online for any of the following sessions:  

  • 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14: Dr. Phil Mulligan, assistant teaching professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, will illustrate how the Intro to Design course, Mech Eng 1720, uses elements of the KEEN entrepreneurial mindset.  
  • 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21: Dr. Nick Libre, associate teaching professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, will showcase the integration of entrepreneurial mindset (EM) components in a core engineering course. Participants will participate in a series of hands-on collaborative activities, not only to learn how EM was used in a certain course but to explore various educational tools to infuse EM concepts into their teaching practices.  
  • 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27: Dr. Rachel Kohman, director of Kummer Student Programs, will present how tying co-curricular involvement into the curriculum for Freshman Engineering 1100 students has developed an entrepreneurial mindset to life beyond the classroom and increases awareness of university resources to support holistic wellbeing. The fall 2023 semester was the second year for continuous improvement of the interdisciplinary and co-curricular approach to the course and the first year of intentionally incorporating the KEEN 3 C’s.  
  • Noon Thursday, March 7: Dr. David Borrok, vice provost and dean of the College of Engineering and Computing, will share plans for an upcoming seed grant competition focused on implementing KEEN principles in the classroom. Feedback on the format and timing for this competition will be welcome and will help leverage the funding to be most effective. Come with your questions and advice.
