Social Enterprise Education Programme 2015-16


Mainstreaming University – Social Enterprise Ecosystem (MUSEE)Creating socially responsible knowledge, practices and graduates


 

Summary

The movement towards creating social value is gaining momentum among students who want to make a difference. Compassion and empathy, coupled with the current state of inequities, has stimulated the need to take action. It is the range of experiences and interests that students bring to the classroom that create an engaging space where social entrepreneurship can be explored in an interdisciplinary way. Social entrepreneurship opens the door to possibilities beyond the traditional concept of two sectors and the notion of a single bottom line. The third sector, the social sector, merges these traditional concepts, and instead of working towards a single bottom line, social enterprises work towards two: profit and impact. In this case, it’s both.

Our youth are told that they can change the world, but the tools that exist to help aid them in their crusade to make an impact are limited and scarce. It is this missing dimension that this project will try to address. Understanding what social value is, how it is created, and why it is difficult to measure are topics that provoke and can challenge our traditional beliefs of how our world operates. From world hunger and poverty to health care and education, the principles of entrepreneurship are used to help create new solutions to social matters by reframing the issue and focusing on context. Mainstreaming social entrepreneurship education through curriculum and policy intervention will help with the process.

The project will produce evidence based input for policy recommendations to university leaders, professors and students. The research will begin with an assessment of existing practices as benchmarks.

This will be followed by a scenario and need gap analysis to produce a framework within which informed policy recommendations for a better university ecosystem will be proposed.

Beneficiaries

The beneficiaries of this project will be the educational institutions and the society at large. Within the educational system, it will be the ecosystem of incubators, accelerators and the enhancers, who will also benefit. There are two key motivators for us to engage in this:

One is our belief that more people actively engaged in co-creating our world will greatly improve it, the other is that the diversity and complexity of problems we as a society face calls for a broad range of solutions. However, currently only a tiny minority is actively involved in solving them. Through this project, we will be able to empower the educational curricula for the students to become agents of change by guiding them through the experience of developing and testing solutions for the problems they care about most.
