Essay and video prompts: 

Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College embraces a view of educators as creative intrapreneurs. Through creative intrapreneurship, educators bring people and ideas together in new combinations to improve student outcomes and experience. Educators who operate with a mindset of creative intrapreneurship:

  • Ask the right questions

  • Are equipped to navigate uncertainty

  • Thrive by engaging challenges as individuals and in teams 

One of the goals of Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College is to add a lens of "creative intrapreneurship" to education to equip the next generation of educators with the skills needed to change education systems, structures and cultures. Please research intrapreneurship before submitting your application to gain a better understanding of this concept. As you learn more, think of how intrapreneurship can be applied to education instead of a business and use these ideas when preparing your application essay or video.

Option 1
Submit an essay of 300 words or less that reflects your understanding of how creative intrapreneurship matters in education. Why do educators need to be creative, innovative and collaborative? 
Please save your essay as a .pdf and upload as directed on the application.   

Option 2
Submit a two-minute video (use your phone or the free ASU mkrstudio in Hayden Library) that tells the selection committee how you have demonstrated the qualities of creative intrapreneurship to serve other people, change a system or overcome a challenge in your own life.

To submit your video, please post it to YouTube and paste the link to your video as directed in the application.
