Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship (SISE) is an interdisciplinary minor for undergraduate students from across the campus. The SISE minor provides students with skills to create a more just and equitable society. SISE courses introduce students to concepts of social innovation, mindsets of human-centered design, and frameworks for social impact leadership. Students in the minor develop an understanding of complex problems while developing a toolkit to create positive social and environmental change.
SISE also offers Taylor Your Life, a career development lab that teaches students how to approach their future with the mindset and toolkit of a designer.
The SISE Minor and “Taylor Your Life” courses have been developed in partnership with the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking. Students are encouraged to utilize opportunities and resources provided through the Taylor Center.
