Social Innovation

Social innovation is the process of generating innovative solutions to society's most pressing issues. Social Innovators determine what doesn't work, identify fresh approaches to address problems, and collaborate with stakeholders to effect change.

Today's issues are complex and require interdisciplinary teams working towards collaborative community-minded projects. Through partnerships with faculty, staff, community practitioners and others across the world, students form partnerships to tackle issues such as public health, environment and climate change, access to education, peace and human rights and poverty alleviation.
