Money and Social Change: Innovative Paradigms and Strategies

CSPL 210
Fall 2013
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.
Course Cluster: Service-Learning

How do people make decisions about using their money for social change? Where will it have the most impact? When do shifts in the rules or the use of capital create systemic change and address structural inequities? This course will explore the role of capital in social change. If we rethink how social change happens--analyzing the nonprofit and public sectors, but also new sector-blending approaches and concepts like collective impact--how does our perspective on capital shift? As a part of this unique course, students will work through a process of selecting a set of local nonprofits to which, as a class, they will grant a total of $10,000.
