The Social Entrepreneurship Salon

"The purpose of the SES is to breakdown perceptions of a false dichotomy between the liberal arts and business by demonstrating the blending of humanistic inquiry, the structure of human societies, our understanding of group/individual interactions, and business operations as well as the creation of new career opportunities through interdisciplinary collaboration and experiential learning."

Susan A. Martinelli-Fernandez, Ph.D., Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences

William C. Bailey, Ph.D., Interim Dean of the College of Business & Technology

All lectures are held on the WIU-QC Campus at 3300 River Dr., Riverfront Hall 103/104 @ 3:30p.m.
