Students brainstorming solutions and taking part in experiential learning opportunities

The McKenna Center offers an exciting mix of student learning opportunities that will challenge students inside and outside the classroom. The centerpiece of our curricular offerings is the Minor in Social Entrepreneurship, which is open to undergraduate students from all majors across the campus. It is a unique and customizable minor that allows students to learn about social entrepreneurship while also focusing on a particular social issue or problem that is of interest to them. In addition, the Center offers a collection of innovative undergraduate and graduate courses as well as Directed Readings under McKenna faculty supervision.

Students have a variety of experiential learning opportunities to choose from, including the Entrepreneurship Empowerment in South Africa Program: a six-week study abroad program where we work with the historically disadvantaged in Cape Town, South Africa. 

The Center frequently hires on-campus student assistants at the beginning of the summer and fall semesters. If you are interested in being considered for a future opening, please submit your details online here.
