At the intersection of new ideas and long-standing social challenges lies the NYU Reynolds Program in Social Entrepreneurship, a provostial cross-university initiative that identifies global changemakers and transforms them into social entrepreneurial gamechangers. Encompassing all of NYU’s undergraduate and graduate schools, the first-of-its-kind program founded in 2006 engages global challenges through a new vision of practice-based education, one that equips cutting-edge leaders to think boldly, act swiftly and build smartly.
The program offers comprehensive opportunities and resources to the entire NYU and greater NYC social entrepreneurial communities including the Social Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century Speaker Series, the R.E.A.L. Workshop Series, the Changemaker Challenge social venture competition, and a continually expanding and evolving classroom and virtual-based curriculum in social entrepreneurial practice for undergraduate and graduate students at NYU and around the world.
As a seed grant winner of the 2011-12 NYU Reynolds Program in Social Entrepreneurship Changemaker Challenge (CmC), NYU Reynolds supports Farm to Live and MEVO in their continued efforts to make the world a more sustainable place by educating and empowering people through ethical agriculture. Eric Fuchs-Stengel, Founder of MEVO and Farm to Live, is a budding social entrepreneur whose dedication and enthusiasm is contagious.
