Changing the World through Social Entrepreneurship
Social entrepreneurship occurs when citizens build or transform
institutions to advance solutions to social problems, such as poverty,
illness, illiteracy, environmental destruction, human rights abuses and
corruption, in order to make life better for many. Is using social
entrepreneurship to affect change the next big idea? This question will
be analyzed at an upcoming continuing education conference presented by
your Alumni Association. Inspired by IUPUI’s Common Theme book How to Change the World – Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas
by David Bornstein, our distinguished panel of faculty and local
changemakers will examine the organizational characteristics, strategies
and personal qualities of a successful social entrepreneur and why this
is important to all of us.
