"The phenomenon of Social Business is changing the way academics, business leaders, and philanthropists around the globe are approaching social issues. Here in the United States we have a unique opportunity, and responsibility, to address global challenges such as poverty, environmental degradation, and social justice issues. By establishing this new Yunus Social Business Resource & Support Center (USA) there is at last a common hub which links those universities in the US working on humanity's greatest challenges."
- Dr. Andrea Grove, Director, YSBC@ California State University Channel Islands (CA Institute for Social Business in Collaboration with Muhammad Yunus)
WHAT IS THE
YUNUS SOCIAL BUSINESS RESOURCE & SUPPORT CENTER (USA)
As the world grapples with income and wealth distribution concentration, along with poverty and unemployment for our growing global population, universities from around the world are establishing Yunus Social Business Centers in response to this generation’s desire for a “new kind of capitalism that serves humanity’s most pressing needs.” The mission of the Yunus Social Business Resource & Support Center (USA) is to support the creation of new university led YSB Centers in establishing innovative curricula, the sponsorship of seminars on social business, engagement with local business and government leaders and joining with students in becoming actively involved with solving social concerns locally, nationally or internationally. The YSB Resource & Support Center (USA) was enthusiastically encouraged by Prof. Yunus to bring the concept of ‘social business’ to American universities, business leaders, government leaders, and concerned philanthropists.
