June 13-July 22
This online experience will explore opportunities to engage the campus connecting curriculum, systems and the organization.

This course is ideal for faculty from any discipline, deans and vice presidents who want to expand their knowledge and application of social innovation to better serve students, and directors and advisors who work directly with entrepreneurs in their own communities.
