SWK 300: Social Justice and Entrepreneurship in Social Work: Home

Dr. Waddell, Special Topics Class

Introduction SWK 327

This course is intended for undergraduate students who have an interest in creating programs and products that have social value for communities, both domestically and in international settings. Entrepreneurship is widely recognized as an important contributor to business development and economic growth in the U.S. More recently, social entrepreneurship has emerged as a change approach that features the application of entrepreneurial practices to social ventures. That is, social entrepreneurship is similar to business entrepreneurship, but social entrepreneurs have the primary goal of creating social value in communities rather than personal or shareholder wealth.
