Who are the NYU Social Entrepreneurship Program Changemakers?
The NYU Social Entrepreneurship Program is designed to support and train the next generation of changemakers who will implement sustainable and scalable solutions to society’s most intractable problems. Each year, the program will exposes 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 and greater NYC community. All interested 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. Established in 2006 as the first cross-university based program of its kind, the program has helped define the field, and has produced thousands of change agents, impacting the lives of millions.
