The Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation Program in Social Entrepreneurship is designed to attract, encourage and train a new generation of leaders in public service. Each year, the program will expose a highly selective group of graduate and undergraduate students from throughout New York University to the cross-disciplinary skills, experiences and networking opportunities needed to advance and support their efforts to realize sustainable and scalable pattern-breaking solutions to society's most intractable problems.
The program will also bring the field of social entrepreneurship to the greater NYU community. All interested NYU students can take advantage of many of the program's resources, including access to influential leaders in the field, exposure to cutting-edge research and scholarship on social entrepreneurship, access to new classes, and the opportunity to participate in skill building activities and trainings. NYU is truly a private university in the public service, and the Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation Program is an important university-wide element of that concept.
