PPS 194 – LEADING AS A SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR
An introduction to social entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial leadership, PPS 194 is geared toward students seeking a challenging learning experience that enables them to enhance their community as entrepreneurial leaders. Through this interactive class, students learn how to put a promising idea for social change into action. Students work to create an “entrepreneurial life plan,” reflecting upon their personal path to creating a life that is in line with their passions and goals. Students apply these skills in the context of a summer experience that aligns with their articulated entrepreneurial path. PPS 194 students demonstrate the following: An eagerness to learn about social entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial leadership-and to put this knowledge into practice; enthusiasm toward learning more about their personal strengths and leadership style and how these can be applied to their personal and professional lives; a desire to think “out of the box” about their next summer experience and to define a plan that has the potential to make a real difference in a community, local or global. Freshmen and sophomores only.
