BUS-451 Building Community Partnerships

This course aims to complete the social entrepreneurial learning objective by providing students an  experiential learning opportunity where they can impact the local community. It aims to combine the practical and applied scholarly perspectives, to prepare students to work in the social entrepreneurial sector after graduation. This course is unique in its scope, as it focuses on how to address issues in a local context. Off- campus projects in both Caldwell and the greater Treasure Valley will afford students the opportunity to apply their theoretical and scholarly knowledge to impact local citizens, make new network connections, and introduce them to cross-sectional organizations that share a common interest in alleviating poverty, improving health, education, the environment etc. Guest lectures, project based learning outcomes, and grant writing activities will not only assess students' work, but provide them the ideal preparation to work in this industry.
