Advancing and Assessing Social Entrepreneurship at Middlebury College

Middlebury College has a long-standing commitment to encouraging students to apply their learning beyond the classroom and develop a sense of social responsibility. Since 2007, the college has made a particular effort to provide more opportunities for students to pursue social entrepreneurship—to identify real-world problems and, with guidance from faculty, mentors, and community partners, develop their own ventures to address these problems. As a result, the 2012-13 academic year saw more than 1,400 Middlebury students participating in some form of community-based learning—over half the undergraduate student population.
