ABSTRACT. We present an adaptive approach to academic entrepreneurship that we show to be successful for faculty working in humanities departments at public regional Master’s universities. At such institutions, faculty need to forge new roles as entrepreneurs that center on pedagogical concerns and student learning so that their work can be recognized as legitimate by colleagues and contribute to their central roles as teachers and scholars. Additionally, because these institutions offer less robust, established support for such endeavors, faculty need to cross numerous boundaries and locate resources and assistance from a variety of campus offices and institutional initiatives. Our article outlines two pilot entrepreneurial projects that we incorporated into professional and technical writing internships and courses that can serve as exemplars for faculty who seek to pursue entrepreneurial activities within similar institutional contexts. pp. 40–61
