The winners of the inaugural Franklin SP2 Social Innovation Prize cite Kat Rosqueta’s course, “Social Impact Strategy, Analysis, and Leadership,” as a crucial contributor to their success in the competition.
“Without the class, we couldn’t be here,” says [Robin] Kendall.
“From the beginning, we insisted that this class be open to graduate and advanced undergraduate students from all 12 schools at Penn,” Rosqueta explains. “Where else will a former investment banker work alongside a child therapist, or a former policy analyst have a class discussion with a former teacher who is sitting next to a former farmer? One of the great joys of teaching this course is that time and again, we see how the best thinking comes from integrating knowledge across silos, for real-world impact.”
