Welcome
By Melissa Carrier, Executive Director
Welcome to our summer edition newsletter. We have a few exciting changes at the Center for Social Value Creation. First, I would like to welcome our new Assistant Director, Guillermo Olivos. Guillermo joined us just 5 days before the Social Enterprise Symposium and jumped in with enthusiasm and patience as we hosted 550 students at Stamp Student Union. Guillermo is a MBA graduate of the Yale School of Management and worked as a social entrepreneur in New Orleans after Katrina. His bio can be found on our website and I hope you will meet him soon. more»

Whether through our Social Venture Consulting Program, our Global Impact Program, or the many individual programs and opportunities we create for our students, the impact of your gift has the potential to be multiplied many times over. View a selected list of giving opportunities, or contact Susan Moon for information on endowment or special opportunities.
