Dr. Bernard Turner, director of the social entrepreneurship program, and Tim Stewart, director of service-learning, recently taped a segment on service-learning and social entrepreneurship for cityCURRENT, a weekly radio show in Nashville.
The cityCURRENT Radio Show airs across all five collective radio stations in Nashville each Sunday morning. The show features interviews with a combination of business and community leaders who discuss significant efforts, trends, lessons learned and ways to make an impact across Middle Tennessee.
Turner and Stewart discussed Belmont’s social entrepreneurship program and its involvement with service-learning, as well as the distinction between community service and service-learning.
The cityCURRENT summary explained, “Social entrepreneurship students will participate in service-learning, an internship and an extended capstone project in the senior year. Through these components, the liberal arts and entrepreneurship content is integrated with the experience and service that characterizes the practicing social entrepreneur.”
