Sustainable and resilient communities are ones where social, economic, human, environmental and cultural needs and goals are all met. Social enterprises contribute to community development through direct participation in the marketplace and by using the profits produced to support a social purpose. This course introduces the social enterprise concept and challenges students to identify social issues and develop market-driven solutions that benefit all stakeholders. Business planning, leadership and transparent financial reporting are all stressed to ensure social benefits are realized.
