Social entrepreneurship is the quest to improve social justice through setting up a business that focuses on social change instead of profit. The goal is to develop a sustainable, effective, and empowering solution that does not depend on charity. In addition, this method enables social justice pioneers a way to support themselves financially at the same time they pursue their dreams to change the world. Students will develop a deeper understanding of social justice as well as business models and hands-on entrepreneurial skills that have the potential to effect change in a sustainable way. The classroom experience will be enhanced by guest speakers and field trips.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
