Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship (SISE) is an interdisciplinary minor for undergraduate students from across the campus. The SISE minor provides students with skills to create a more just and equitable society. SISE courses introduce students to concepts of social innovation, mindsets of human-centered design, and frameworks for social impact leadership. Students in the minor develop an understanding of complex problems while developing a toolkit to create positive social and environmental change.
A minor in SISE consists of six courses for a total of 17 credit hours. SISE 2010 is a pre-requisite for all other classes and includes a mandatory 20-hour service-learning component.
The SISE Minor has been developed in partnership with the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking. SISE students are encouraged to utilize opportunities and resources provided through the Taylor Center, and many SISE courses are located at the Taylor Center in Howard-Tilton Memorial Library Room 406. Students wishing to declare the SISE minor can consult the SISE Academic Advisor Rebecca Otten.
