“The goal is to integrate social innovation and social entrepreneurship in a students’ degree. Zone learning adds to the rich array of opportunities that are the hallmark of a Ryerson education. We have a long tradition as leaders in experiential learning, and this is another way to do that.”
Marcia Moshe, Vice Provost Academic - Ryerson University

Share your expertise
The Social Ventures Zone offers unique knowledge and skill-building opportunities where faculty can develop workshops, present case studies, or lead hands-on learning and discussions.
