Session Description

Diversity of inputs-people, experiences, methods, is the cornerstone of adaptability. Guessing the changes that are coming to our universities is a losing game. Designing programs with the adaptability that diversity brings doesn’t just promote equity and improve pedagogy, it ensures these programs’ survival. This workshop will describe how the Center for Economic Inclusion (CEI) at Bauer College, University of Houston has implemented this in its renowned SURE℠ experiential learning program which facilitates a value-added partnership between UH students, business executives, and under-resourced entrepreneurs. This innovative course trains students with the human-centered skills and empowers entrepreneurs for a measurable societal impact.
