The center was established thanks to the generosity of Alan Hassenfeld and the Hassenfeld Family Foundation. Hassenfeld, the former CEO at Hasbro Inc., has been a leader in corporate philanthropy over the long course of his business career.
The mission of the Middlebury Center for Social Entrepreneurship is to be a world leader in social change and development. Based on our conviction that social entrepreneurship education is integral to the 21st-century liberal arts, we offer students opportunities to reflect, to connect, to analyze, and to engage. Building on and complementing Middlebury’s commitment to educating students in the tradition of the liberal arts, our students learn to be effective agents of social change by reflecting on who they are, connecting with others, analyzing systemic challenges, and engaging the world around them. The center is designed to be a hub within a global network of schools, NGOs, government agencies, businesses, and foundations that share a commitment to creating 21st-century solutions.
The Middlebury Center for Social Entrepreneurship is located at:
118 South Main St. (on the corner of Storrs Ave.)
