Social Entrepreneur in Residence

The Swearer Center for Public Service and Taubman Center for Public Policy have partnered to create a semester-long residency program for experienced social change leaders.
The Taubman Fellow/Social Entrepreneur in Residence will serve as an educator, advisor, and convener within the social innovation community at Brown. This includes:

Educating: The Fellow may support the teaching of an existing course at Brown, or may propose a new course in their area of interest/expertise that connects to ideas of social change and social innovation.

Advising: Brown is home to dozens of students who are exploring social innovation, particularly through the development of social impact ventures. These students crave advice and guidance from seasoned professionals who have experienced the various challenges inherent in entrepreneurship. The Fellow will hold regular office hours for these students, serving as a coach, advisor, and connector to these students.

Personal Learning and Growth: The Fellow will have the opportunity to develop a project that leverages the resources and expertise at Brown. This may involve research, writing, or other work. Through these projects, Fellows will convene faculty and other stakeholders with common interests and expertise, either through a formal seminar or more informal learning community.

We look forward to welcoming our first Social Entrepreneur in Residence to campus in Spring 2016 and will be opening up applications for the Fall 2016 semester soon - please check back or contact alan_harlam@brown.edu with any questions.
