Who are the people who bring about great changes in our world? How do they do it? Inspired by Getting Beyond Better, the book by Roger L. Martin and Sally R. Osberg, participants in the I-Think Summer Institute will explore the mindsets and tools of social entrepreneurs. These inspiring leaders—call them disrupters, visionaries, or change makers—develop, build, and scale their solutions to bring about truly lasting social change. But to succeed in bringing about that change requires a different kind of thinking. I-Think offers students who really want to change the world the opportunity to learn to think like a social entrepreneur and apply Integrative Thinking to a real-world challenge.
