Miller Center: Weaving Social Entrepreneurship into the DNA of SCU 

Miller Center accelerates social entrepreneurship to end poverty and protect the planet. Our award-winning fellowship offers Santa Clara students opportunities to learn and work with social enterprises around the world. Of our 162 student fellows, 12 were awarded Fulbrights and 3 became valedictorians. 

To cultivate the next generation of changemakers, by 2025 Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship will engage 500 students annually in a range of high-impact experiential learning opportunities with social entrepreneurs. Through fellowships, internships, case studies, and research opportunities, we connect students to SCU’s vision of educating leaders to build a more humane and sustainable world. Be part of the solution to help students create impact.
