The Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship makes that mission a reality for students by teaching practical skills, building a community of changemakers, and forging pathways for student entrepreneurs and innovators. We offer a year-long 2-credit fellowship, a 6-week 0.25-credit intro course, a nonprofit board residencygrants, 1:1 advising, and more.
