Annals in Entrepreneurship Education series

Edited by Michael H. Morris

A sizable gap exists between the ample demands for (and growing supply of) entrepreneurship education and our understanding of how to best approach the teaching and learning of entrepreneurship. To help close this gap, the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) has identified some of the most important and provocative work on entrepreneurship education over the years, and worked with the authors of this work to produce updated perspectives. The intent is to capture the richest insights and best practices in teaching entrepreneurship, building entrepreneurship curricula, and developing educational programs.

Chapter 8: Teaching social entrepreneurship

Subjects: business and management, entrepreneurship, management education, education, management education


Entrepreneurship education has been on the rise for decades. Social entrepreneurship education is relatively new to the scene of higher education. Is social entrepreneurship education any more than entrepreneurship education with a socially minded twist? What are the unique approaches to and challenges in teaching social entrepreneurship? In this chapter, we survey the field of social entrepreneurship education from the very different vantage points of two co-authors. Kristin Joos, Social Entrepreneurship Lecturer and Coordinator of the Innovative Sustainability and Social Impact Initiative in the Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Florida, brings almost ten years of social entrepreneurship classroom teaching and program development experience. Michele Leaman, Director of the Changemaker Campus network at Ashoka, adds her field-level perspective, derived from working with hundreds of social entrepreneurship educators over the past three years. Together, we hope to present definitions, history, best practices, challenges, and trends illuminating a possible future for social entrepreneurship education at colleges and universities.
