Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship
The Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship, established through a gift from the Robert [’61] and Margaret Patricelli Family Foundation, supports Wesleyan students and alumni interested in creating and sustaining programs, businesses, and organizations that advance the public good. Through specialized training and networking opportunities, combined in some cases with seed financing, the Center aims to strengthen social entrepreneurship and engagement. The Center draws on the strategic thinking and skills of many Wesleyan alumni who have played substantial roles in advancing service and development projects in the United States and around the world by inviting them to participate as speakers, mentors, and collaborators in its activities.
The Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship is located in the Allbritton Center, which aims to celebrate and strengthen the University’s engagement with the world by providing a central location for courses, workshops, programs, students, faculty, and visiting scholars engaged in interpreting and shaping social, economic, and political life.
