Courses Open to All Majors
SIE Student Spotlights coming soon
The SIE Internship Program helps students tie theory to practice through placements with local, national, and international partner organizations. These experiential education opportunities help students integrate theoryand knowledge from the classroom with practical application and skill development in a professional setting. By partnering with a diverse set of social enterprises and forward-thinking organizations in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, these unique opportunities allow students to pursue their unique interests and passions, practice creativity, leverage their skills and knowledge to create social impact and increase social value, and be mentored as they develop the skills, integrity, and tenacity of our best social entrepreneurs, leaders, and innovators.
SIE Bali Immersion:
The Bali SIE Immersion Program serves as either a capstone experience for students who are near the end of their undergraduate careers or as a powerful introduction to the field of SIE for those who are just getting started.
This dynamic four-week program provides students with an immersive understanding of social innovation & entrepreneurship through a highly-interactive exploration and application of theory and methods. The group travels to several locations around Bali to study the following social/environmental issues through site visits, talks with community and academic leaders, experiential case studies, action research, and immersion experiences:
Poverty & Economic Empowerment
Environment & Sustainable Development
Community & Global Health
The group also explores how these issues intersect with each other and examines them through the lenses of:
Women & Gender
Traditional vs. Modern
Leadership & Community
Formal, Non-Formal, & Informal Education
The Bali Changemakers Initiative
The Bali Changemakers Initiative is a year-long leadership development program for Balinese committed to creating positive social change in their communities. Those that are selected represent diverse backgrounds and approaches to change, and they are interested in working on many different issues in their communities across the island. This initiative is in partnership with The Bali Institute and Five Pillar Foundation.
Every Bali Changemaker (BC) will work on a community-action project to address a need in their local area. This program don’t tell BCs what to think or what issues to work on. Rather, this program provides the training, mentorship, resources, and technical assistance necessary to help ensure their projects can be supported over the long-term.
This training is for any and all Balinese who feel called to explore who they are and what it means to re-imagine Bali for a sustainable and resilient future. BCs are individuals who show great potential and a committed passion for significant social and environmental change in our lifetime.
