 Do you want a transformative learning experience like Samantha and Usman?

Why: You are tired of a traditional classroom. You want to work on solutions to social justice and environmental challenges. You want to learn how social enterprises solve real-world problems and learn collaboratively with change makers. If any of this is true for you, please read more and take action.images
What: This Spring, the College’s Social Entrepreneurship Program is offering IDPT 405 Local Social Entrepreneurship Seminar. The problems-based experiential-learning seminar will meet Monday evenings from 7:00-10:00PM. Students earn 0.5 academic credits.

How: Teams of three will be paired with a local nonprofit organization. You will work closely with the organizations all semester to help them solve a defined problem they are currently facing. Weekly seminar sessions are led by Dr. Matt Mariola (Environmental Studies) and Dr. Amyaz Moledina (Economics). An expected outcome from the seminar is a business & marketing plan and a final presentation to the Board of the organization. No prior experience necessary. We do require your enthusiasm, passion for the problem, and a strong work-ethic. Space in the seminar is limited. A short application is required. The deadline to submit your application is Friday November 11th at 4pm. Apply here.
