PSK 605 – Social Entrepreneurship

Addresses the most frequently mentioned needs to growing an enterprising organization—community, society, and economics. Students will apply concepts to their own organization or an idea they wish to explore. Emphasis will be placed on strategy to bring clarity and focus in order to grow their organization’s effectiveness and impact. Special consideration will be given to key stakeholders, including volunteers (an underleveraged asset in most non-profit organizations.) This course presents specific strategies to motivate, recruit, track, and retain social engagement. Community labs will allow participants to plan and design analysis, social impact measurement, funding, as well as key issues identified by students in the class.
