Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship
Course Description:
Today’s social issues are complex and ever changing. This course explores innovation within the social arena specifically infused with a faith-based perspective. Scripture commands us to look after the orphan and the widow and anyone else in need, and while many of our traditional nonprofits have served well, the social issues of today will require a dramatic, innovative solution. “Social entrepreneurship is the ultimate solution to global crises” (Nazmus Sadat, 2015).

Content Outline:
  • Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship
  • Legal Structures for Social Entrepreneurs
  • Social Venture Funding
  • Assessing Success
  • Scaling the Social Venture

Dallas Baptist University respects the privacy of its students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and other customers. DBU makes every effort to protect personal information that it collects from conducting business.

When processing E-commerce transactions, such as credit card, debit card or ACH payments, it is necessary to collect personal financial information. DBU has taken great efforts to process these transactions in the most secure means possible.

By policy, Dallas Baptist University itself does not collect personal information like credit card numbers; instead, we partner with an outside service provider that collects the information and processes the transactions on our behalf.

The policy specifies that the provider must be PCI DSS certified, which means that it has demonstrated its systems and procedures meet the stringent security standards of the payment card industry. The provider is also required to certify in writing that it will keep this information confidential and, will not share it with any party unless that party needs it to complete the transaction.
