Social Innovation Symposium Day II
Please RSVP here: http://sisymposium2015.eventbrite.com
Discovering Social Innovation through Engaged Scholarship is a one-day research symposium, Friday March 20, 2015. It is led by graduate students from Tulane University, in collaboration with Tulane University’s Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship (SISE) program and Tulane’s new Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking. Our spring 2015 New Day Speaker, Jane Wei-Skillern, PhD, will provide the keynote address on Thursday evening, March 19, 2015. We invite graduate students, post-graduate researchers, faculty, and independent researchers from any academic discipline and epistemological standpoint, to join in a co-learning journey. Through this symposium we aim to network across disciplines, enhance skills, and shape the priorities in the field. Our aim is to discover the field of social innovation: novel solutions to social problems that are “more effective, efficient, sustainable, or just than existing solutions and for which the value created accrues primarily to society as a whole rather than private individuals” (Phills, Deiglmeier and Miller, 2008).
