Social Entrepreneurship and Community Leadership: A Service-Learning Model for Management Education
Litzky, Barrie E.; Godshalk, Veronica M.; Walton-Bongers, Cynthia
Journal of Management Education, v34 n1 p142-162 2010
This article provides a "how to" guide for developing and teaching a service-learning course in social entrepreneurship and community leadership. As the framework of the course, service-learning operates through faculty to student, student to student, and student to client interactions. The discussion articulates the planning and faculty commitment necessary as well as the goals, objectives, project examples, and outcomes associated with the class. A unique aspect of the course, the pairing of graduate student mentors with high school student proteges within teams, is described. The service-learning activities required throughout the course are generalizable to several management education contexts that wish to enhance learning and leadership by creating partnerships between the university, its students, and its community.
