Description: This course introduces students to contemporary concepts, debates, and contexts necessary for analyzing and engaging in the sphere of social entrepreneurship. The course has four distinct parts: social context; organizational forms and collaborations; private sector roles; and measurement and impacts. Various aspects of social entrepreneurship, such as base of the pyramid/microenterprises, private-public partnerships, private-governmental partnerships, voluntary social codes, corporate social responsibility, and ethical consumerism will be covered. From this foundation, students will undertake a social entrepreneurship project about a contemporary social problem in Houston: food insecurity and food deserts. Cross-list: GLHT 464, SOSC 464.
