RECODE WEBINAR: How social innovation is emerging across Canadian campuses
Thursday February 11, 2016 from 12:00-1:00pm EDT
Join us on Thursday February 11 for a webinar discussion with Scaled Purpose co-directors Miles DePaul and Sean Campbell to explore their findings from the recently released Scaled Purpose and Mount Royal University report: Where to Begin: How Social Innovation is Emerging Across Canadian Campuses. The report explores models that universities have adopted, or are exploring, to build a culture of—and ecosystem for—social innovation on campus and within their respective communities.
James Stauch, Director of Mount Royal’s Institute for Community Prosperity will introduce Miles and Sean, who will share how campuses and community incubators can provide engaging and high impact support for students and social entrepreneurs. Based on their research and practitioner interviews, they will provide insights and recommendations on the (1) archetypes of a social innovation campus, (2) benefits and challenges of different incubator service offerings, (3) approaches to language and objectives, (4) revenue models and student financial support, and (5) community integration.
