Specific Ways To Engage
Social Enterprise Consulting
We believe that poverty is a personal problem for everyone, and the purpose of the Social Enterprise Consulting (SEc) group is to provide concrete opportunities for students to leverage their individual strengths and skill sets in order to positively contribute to a proactive solution. The SEc matches students with social enterprises with real strategic, development, human capital, or operational needs, trains them on how to be responsible partners, and supports them throughout their consulting engagement.
Project Pyramid, a Vanderbilt University organization, creates a community that addresses issues of poverty in an interdisciplinary classroom and through sustained partnerships with local and international organizations. Its members learn to recognize multiple poverties from one another in the classroom and from individuals and organizations that encounter poverties first hand. Students respond to knowledge gained in the classroom and through collaborative partnerships by engaging in action to alleviate poverty.
