Enrollment in this course is by permission of the instructor at the time of Spring 2021 course registration. Interested students should complete this brief survey. This course provides students an opportunity to deeply explore the needs of a community in order to bring their social and environmental impact program to life. Incorporating elements of discovery, resource mapping, ideation, prototyping, and user testing, the course takes students through a design-driven process aimed at clarifying the unmet need they have identified, better understanding their target community, validating assumptions, and considering different approaches to address root cause issues within a larger system. Concepts may take the form of social movements, program strategies, products and services, or projects that live in collaboration with existing organizations. This course is specifically targeted to students who want to focus on their early–stage idea and know they would benefit from more time and connection to the community they want to serve. The course is structured as a seminar and studio, and open to graduate students and upper level undergraduates. This course is an elective course for the Graduate Minor in Impact Entrepreneurship.
