Prestigious liberal arts institution, Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, NY, has entered into an innovative partnership with the Global Center for Social Entrepreneur Network (GCSEN Foundation), implementing GCSEN's Social Venture Internship program (SVI) for students and graduates. Ranked 11th in the 2019 edition of Best Colleges for national Liberal Arts Colleges, Vassar, founded in 1861, is a highly selective, coeducational, private, residential college renowned for pioneering achievements in education, for its long history of curricular innovation, and for the beauty of its campus in the Hudson Valley.
The Social Venture Internship program, launched during the Fall 2018 Semester, is facilitated by Vassar's Office of Community-Engaged Learning and sponsored by the Career Development Office. SVI is a three-part experience developed by GCSEN, initially designated for six Vassar students but designed to scale up based on future student demand. The SVI program is now available to all colleges, starting with a 12-hour blended learning on-line and live coaching experience, enabling students to learn the fundamentals of starting a business tied to a relevant, socially beneficial venture or social enterprise that they create.
