Carolina Seminar on
Innovation for the Public Good

The Carolina Seminar on Innovation for the Public Good (formerly the Carolina Seminar on Social Innovation) sits at the cross-section of the two core strategies of UNC’s overarching “Blueprint for Next” strategic framework: “Of the Public, for the Public” and “Innovation Made Fundamental.”

This seminar will play a catalytic role in amplifying the mission of Carolina by providing an educational pathway for our faculty and students to explore modern changemaking and practice the skills necessary to contribute toward meaningful change in the world. Participants will explore evidence and promising based creative problem-solving approaches and early, team-oriented, customer/community discovery methods to develop solutions that address pressing human concerns.
