To solve today’s most complex and pressing societal problems requires innovative thinking. This is especially true in the public/non-profit/social sectors where workers are increasingly expected to do more for their clients with fewer resources. 


The Certificate program in Social Innovation prepares students for working in fields that seek to improve the lives of society's most vulnerable and disadvantaged people. The program will teach students how to design and execute evidence-based strategies for advancing human welfare. And it advances one of the campus’s three strategic imperatives, which is to “Be the Top University for Innovation.” Please explore the links to learn more about the Social Innovation program at CU Boulder.
