Building upon Tulane University’s strengths in civic engagement and service learning, the Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship (SISE) program provides students with skills to create a more just and equitable society. The program is comprised of the SISE Minor and Taylor Your Life course. 

The five main courses in the SISE minor introduces students to concepts of social innovation, mindsets of human-centered design, and frameworks for social impact leadership. SISE also offers Taylor Your Life, a career development lab that teaches students how to approach their future with the mindset and toolkit of a designer.

The SISE program is supported by a variety of programming offered at the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking.

SISE offices are located on the fourth floor of Howard Tilton Memorial Library next to the Latin American Library, in the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking. Students wishing to declare the SISE minor and enroll in the Taylor Your Life course can consult the SISE Academic Advisor Rebecca Otten.
