ENT 410S – Leadership in Nonprofits and Social Entrepreneurship

3 credit hours

This course introduces students to obstacles facing nonprofit organizations and start-ups, provides students the tools and concepts essential to address these obstacles, and challenges students to use these tools and their own value systems in making "real dollar" grants to local nonprofits. The pedagogy is a blend of case studies, online learning (a six-module MOOC from Stanford), and service-learning work. In the service-learning portion of the course, students evaluate proposals from area nonprofits and award grants provided by the Learning by Giving Foundation and local philanthropists.
