Program description

Summer Course on Organizing for Good

Grand challenges of our time will demand entirely new ways of thinking about when, how, and under what conditions organizations are "doing good" and what effects that has. Focus is on the role of organizations in society, the ways that organizations can "do good," the challenges organizations face in attempting to "do good", limitations to current ways of organizing, alternative ways to organize and lead organizations that are "good," and the role and responsibilities of individuals in organizations. Students will reflect on and refine their own values and purpose to identify ways in which they can do good. This course has been designated as a Cardinal Course by the Haas Center for Public Service.

Please note:

There has been very high interest in our program and we’ve had an unprecedented number of applicants for Summer 2021, much higher than expected. We have limited spaces available, but encourage you to check back again for future dates or to visit our website to see course availability.
