More than 4 billion people live without adequate food, clean water, modern energy, education, healthcare, or dignified jobs. In Pope Francis’s recent encyclical, Laudato Si, he emphasizes the “intimate relationship between the poor and the fragility of the planet” and clearly articulates why we need to address this integral bond as a matter of morality.
The Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship is located in Silicon Valley at Santa Clara University (SCU). Consistent with Santa Clara’s Jesuit tradition, the Miller Center believes that social entrepreneurship provides a path out of poverty, creates livelihoods, and restores human dignity. We accelerate global, innovation-based social entrepreneurship in service to humanity through our three areas of work: the Global Social Benefit Institute (GSBI®), Impact Capital, and Education and Action Research.
As we reflect on the accomplishments of last year and anticipate the next, our focus is Accelerating Global Impact.
