SST 295-05 - Special Topic: Social Justice Issues Influencing American Business

1 credits (Spring)
American business has been phenomenally successful in generating economic gain. But increasingly business leaders are seeking “social” as well as financial returns in their businesses. In this course, we’ll study this trend and project where it is likely to lead into the future. We’ll examine innovative tools and processes that are being used in this “Social Enterprise” revolution, and what it means to folks who will soon enter the workforce. Finally, we’ll relate all this to Grinnell’s long-term interest in social justice.

Prerequisite: One course is the social studies division.
Note: Dates April 18 to April 27. Short course deadlines apply.
