Social entrepreneurship (SE) is the use of entrepreneurial principles to create sustainable social value. This study assesses the feasibility of initiating a SE program at WPI. Student surveys, a focus group, and faculty interviews demonstrated a general lack of understanding of SE. A deeper analysis, however, demonstrated that students and faculty members are interested in SE, especially in the form of sustainability and related fields. This study recommends the gradual implementation of a SE program through extracurricular and academic avenues.
