Life-Changing Learning Experiences for Social Entrepreneurs

“GCSEN has been with us every step of the way. It’s been an incredible partnership to grow together, in this innovative arena. Social Entrepreneurship is about the power of linking shared visions and shared missions, and making exponential social impacts."

– Dennis M. Hanno, President, Wheaton College

“The students that are interested in social entrepreneurism are really the ones that are more outside the box thinkers. Mike Caslin course has taken them from start-up to scale in just one semester, and they're ready to compete in the marketplace.”

– Ms. Kristin Backhaus, Dean of the SUNY New Paltz Business School

"We are thrilled to partner with GCSEN on the SVI initiative at a time when we are assessing student appetite and building campus support for social entrepreneurship. We know students are hungry for experiences like this, that give them the tools, time, and support for their entrepreneurial ideas."

– Ms. Stacy Bingham, Director of Career Development, Vassar College; President & Executive Chair, Liberal Arts Career Network

“I am so pleased to be able to collaborate with GCSEN Foundation and its 4P Social Entrepreneurship framework. It is palpable, it is real, it is compassionate, and it is possible to move our world to a better place via universities, as vital place-makers in the local economy.”

– Ms. Mary Kate Naatus, Dean, Saint Peter's University, NJ

I have heard great things about you and your GCSEN programs.
