Leadership Minor Capstone - Social Impact Organizations
This is a capstone style course where most of the learning will be generated through a project with a social sector (social enterprise or nonprofit) organization, and by attending the weekly IMPACT Speaker series talks. The groundwork for understanding the opportunities and challenges of the social sector will be covered through readings, TED style videos, student-led class discussions, and by a site visit to a local nonprofit organization.
