Welcome to the Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise (CSIE), an interdisciplinary center which encourages students, faculty, and staff to engage with social innovation, an exciting emerging field which harnesses the tools of business and public policy to contribute to a socially and environmentally more sustainable world. We offer many programs and events to support students in their learning paths and growth and to support faculty and community partners in their social innovation work.
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.
