To be a social entrepreneur, one must attack a social problem from a creative perspective. With the conceptual and skills based content in this certificate program, the student learns of ways to help "communities of need," especially disadvantaged racial and ethnic minorities and people of any race or ethnicity in pockets of extreme poverty. Students will study how everyday people have developed small, grass-roots organizations (often nonprofit corporations) to help communities of need. Through this certificate students should develop a working knowledge or how to start or enhance programs or agencies aimed at solving, or, at least, mitigation social problems in communities of need.
