SW 889 Social Innovation (Spring: 3)
SW 942 or permission
Required of Macro Social Work students.
Designed to prepare students with the skills to develop transformational
responses to social problems through learning concepts related to innovation,
needs assessment, and grant development, this course provides students with
knowledge about how to create new, innovative responses to social problems
and put these ideas into action. Students study examples of social entrepreneurship,
learn how to assess social need, and develop new programmatic responses
through grant-writing. Participation in the Social Innovation Lab allows
students a first-hand look at innovation in action in existing non-profits
and at how the redesign process promotes and supports new thinking.
