Social Change / Rooted Innovation – New Course Spring 2019

Our very own Professor Dmitri Seals will be launching the Rooted Innovation Lab in the spring of 2019. Exploring the theory and practice of Social Change, this course seeks to create meaningful partnerships with social impact organizations that allow them to leverage the best of our student’s social innovation talents as well as provide students with substantive learning and developmental opportunities. Through collaborating with organizations in solving key problems, students will develop key skills and networks to drive their work as leaders and catalysts for social change after graduation.
