WHY MILLER CENTER FOR SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP?
Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship is the foremost university-based global social enterprise accelerator.

WEAVING SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP INTO THE DNA OF SCU
OUR SCU ENGAGEMENT STRATEGY
Weaving social entrepreneurship into the DNA of Santa Clara University through fellowships, internships, case studies, and research further connects students to SCU’s vision of educating leaders of competence, conscience, and compassion to build a more humane, just, and sustainable world. Miller Center has launched an ambitious campaign to engage 500 students annually in a range of high-impact experiential learning opportunities with social enterprises. We are also working more closely with SCU faculty across campus to further incorporate social entrepreneurship into their research and curricula.
