  • Center for Social Innovation

    At the Center for Social Innovation at Worcester State University, we seek to create a culture of social innovation that tackles deep-rooted social problems. Through education, we create inventive pathways that help you and other future leaders direct this emergent passionate force toward solving entrenched social problems. Through community engagement, we create platforms of systematic study that address social problems and support cross-sector intellectual pollination.

    We envision a world where citizens, organizations, and institutions consciously and continuously work to create a more desirable future for the common good. We promote a world in which we all work more closely together to create a sustainable and values-based future for our cities, states, and nations. Our programming includes guest speakers and courses and workshops for students and social entrepreneurs. We also develop internships and service-learning opportunities that enable you to work on social issues in innovative ways.

    Who We Are
    We share leadership of the center with an advisory body and a variety of affiliated faculty, associates, fellows, and organizational partners.
