Social Entrepreneurship Initiative

Changemaking. Social justice. Responsible business.

The Social Entrepreneurship Initiative (SEI) at the University of Delaware is a nationally recognized program offering curricular and co-curricular opportunities for students across the University to explore social innovation and entrepreneurship and how it fits for their interest and needs. Our program supports current and aspiring changemakers who want to customize their degree or enhance their career prospects in an area that supports social change.

Social entrepreneurship education is a lens through which students are seeking to connect with both the timely and timeless challenges seen in our world.
