SOCIAL

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

EDUCATION RESOURCE HANDBOOK

Institutional Planning

The Social Entrepreneurship Education Resource Handbook 2011 version is for colleges and universities engaged in teaching, research and applied learning in social entrepreneurship. Developed by Ashoka U and Debbi Brock, the fifth edition provides a comprehensive look at social entrepreneurship education. The Handbook includes enhanced features to help navigate recent developments in the field including innovative course models. Ashoka U’s Elements of Excellence offer a road map for building a best in class social entrepreneurship education program and summary grids of comprehensive listings. The count of new majors, minors and programs in social entrepreneurship from around the world has exceeded 75 different colleges and universities, 40% of which are outside the United States. In the 2011 version of the Handbook, we documented a 240% increase in centers or programs to 48, from 2008. Graduate schools now offer 17 masters level offerings, with the abundance in Europe.

The Handbook will be an effective tool for advancing social entrepreneurship for your students, on your campus, and for the local community. The Handbook, originally designed for faculty members interested in teaching social entrepreneurship, was revised to include uses and applications for administrators eager to advance social entrepreneurship at their colleges and universities, students interested in launching their own social ventures and plugging into relevant resources, and practitioners of social entrepreneurship with an interest in higher education programs.
