Social Entrepreneurship Council


Social Entrepreneurs Council

Old Dominion University is committed to educating and empowering a workforce of leaders as change agents in a global society. The Office of Intercultural Relations, within Student Enrollment and Engagement Services, supports that objective through its comprehensive programming and services. As the University's influence within the community and nation increases, we strive to work collaboratively on campus towards shaping a more equitable, just and sustainable environment. The Social Entrepreneurs Council (SEC) has been established to foster alliances across the campus, promote collaborative programming and facilitate creative problem-solving.

The SEC serves as an advisor to the Office of Intercultural Relations on programming that identifies and addresses social issues through coalition-building and exploring creative solutions. The SEC which is composed of students, faculty and administrators meets monthly to discuss emerging issues, explore ideas for campus programs, and advocate for positive change in the community and society. Social Entrepreneurship is the agency to shape society and focuses on developing social capital. In accordance with the concept of social entrepreneurship, the SEC promotes innovation, campus community, social responsibility and student leadership. The SEC epitomizes idea fusion by collectively exploring globally, from micro to macro-level, and taking action locally.
