Universities as Intermediaries: Impact Investing and Social Entrepreneurship
Tekula, Rebecca; Shah, Archana; Jhamb, Jordan
Metropolitan Universities, v26 n1 p35-51 2015
Metropolitan universities are well poised in communities to be intermediaries among various actors involved in social innovation. Pace University established one of the first institutes on social entrepreneurship. Its unique position at the university level allows programming to transcend certain institutional challenges. The emerging field of impact investing is fertile ground for partnerships allowing the university to serve as resource provider, while benefiting from myriad opportunities for student and faculty engagement, experiential learning, and access.
