Social Innovation brings a new perspective to existing ways of decision-making in today’s society. By reconceptualizing education, we’ve broadened the learning experience to focus on how you can make a positive impact on the world.
In your first year, through tools like empowerment, inclusiveness, community engagement, sustainable development, environmental stewardship, reconciliation, and social activism, you will discover the tremendous capacities of communities and individuals looking to initiate systems change.  With a focus on self-reflection and embedded with Indigenous teaching, ceremony, and ways of knowing, you will learn about yourself, your potential, and your community.

During the second year of the program, you will choose a major that reflects your passions, skills, talents, and career aspirations:

Community Development, which gathers the best practices of societies looking at improving the lives of their most disenfranchised members.

Indigenous Social Entrepreneurship, which is a new way to approach launching ventures that will positively impact your community and the world.

Courses within this program and its majors are experiential, project-based, and modular, with cross-cutting themes that will interest a wide variety of learners. If you’re thinking of making a change, we just have one question for you – how do you want your world to be?
