CaSES: Civic and Social Entrepreneurship Summit
California State University, Los Angeles
Dec 7-8, 2017
At the first ever CaSES event at Cal State LA, over 100 students presented innovative solutions to wicked problems in their communities. Working with Professor Marla Parker in Political Science and Professor Dmitri Seals in Sociology, students first conducted research in their own communities to explore the connections between course themes and real-life experience. They worked in teams, analyzing qualitative and quantitative data to design solutions and considering the challenges of implementing big ideas for social change.
The final result is a set of presentations that help to define a model of entrepreneurship rooted in responsible research, community accountability, and practical innovation. Thanks to all the partners who made this possible – and particularly to the students who went above and beyond, bringing their classroom learning to life to benefit their communities.
