Advanced Social Innovation

UPADM-GP.266, 4 points.


This is an advanced seminar for students who have taken the introductory course on social entrepreneurship, or have focused on similar coursework in past study. Each student will be responsible for developing an original blueprint for social innovation: a creative proposal for solving a societal problem. Over the course of the term, students are expected to turn their blueprint into a reality. To help them do so, the coursework will focus on the skill building necessary to complete the projects. Students will also find support in the instructor, teaching assistant, and their fellow classmates, as well as financial support in the form of seed money, provided by a generous donor, who has "adopted the class," for project completion. Guest lecturers who have particular experience and expertise on the weekly topic will be presenting at various points throughout the term.
