Welcome to the Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise (CSIE)! We offer high-impact programs steeped in real-world experiential learning. Our mission is to inspire, train and support the next generation of changemakers, who have the confidence and competence to create substantial impact towards a world where people, planet and profit all thrive.
As an interdisciplinary center, we encourage students, faculty, staff and community members to harness the tools of business, public policy, activism, community and civic engagement and philanthropy to contribute to a more socially, environmentally and economically sustainable world.
Semester in the City
SITC gives students a chance to pursue or discover their passions while earning credit and building skills as a changemaker. Leading mission driving organizations in Boston host students for meaningful internships, with dedicated mentors, each fall and spring semesters.
