Social entrepreneurship occurs when citizens build or transform institutions to advance solutions to social problems, such as poverty, illness, illiteracy, environmental destruction, human rights abuses and corruption, in order to make life better for many. Is using social entrepreneurship to affect change the next big idea? This question will be analyzed at an upcoming continuing education conference presented by your Alumni Association. Inspired by IUPUI’s Common Theme book How to Change the World – Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideasby David Bornstein, our distinguished panel of faculty and local changemakers will examine the organizational characteristics, strategies and personal qualities of a successful social entrepreneur and why this is important to all of us.

CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE: All participants will receive a “Certificate of Attendance” and 2.5 hours of *CLE (Continuing Legal Education) will be offered to Indiana licensed attorneys, pending approval.

We suggest you park in the North Street garage adjacent to the University Place Conference Center.

ATTIRE: You will find that some people will be in business casual attire, others will be wearing their favorite IUPUI sweatshirts and jeans. It is Saturday. Be comfortable!
