Middlebury’s Social Entrepreneurship Programs are designed to nurture changemakers by encouraging students to reflect upon and connect curricular and non-curricular learning experiences.
Changemakers are agents of social change in communities facing systemic challenges.
By engaging with these communities, changemakers develop the empathy, humility, and experience needed for positive social impact.
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.
