Having students apply what they study and learn is a principal goal of all educators. This article describes a course, “Entrepreneurship, Leadership, and Team Building: Identifying and Applying Best Practices,” that was developed and taught in each of the last two years for a University Honors Program. Students not only learned but applied this learning as they effected minor and major change on campus. In addition, this article provides background information relevant to professors interested in offering a similar course and shares projects, outcomes, and a full-course structure.
