Haiti Social Entrepreneurship Course Spring 2017
I am teaming with CHI Haiti and the Institute for International Business at the University of Iowa, under the mentorship of Dimy Doresca, to propose a three credit hour International Entrepreneurship class with a study abroad component to Haiti. This class would follow a similar structure to the other International Entrepreneurship and Culture courses (Example:https://isis.uiowa.edu/isis2/courses/details.page?...).
My proposal will include in-depth research on the business culture and issues in Haiti through direct communication with Haitians, with members of CHI Haiti, and independent research, in order to make recommendations for the course structure. Additionally, my proposal will justify the need for this program, what students' will gain from the class, and how any security and health infrastructure concerns will be mitigated.
Lastly, I will gauge the interest of students to participate in this social entrepreneurship trip to Haiti. For that reason I have created a petition to gain support for the program idea. If you think this is a good idea, please add your name!
