1. Academic: Focused on inspiring students through incorporation of global health innovation and social entrepreneurship into academic and co-curricular activities, such as course content/projects, speakers, workshops, and case competitions.
2. Experiential: Identify and promote experiential learning for Duke students in global health innovation and social entrepreneurship; identify ways to provide support for student social entrepreneurs focused on global health (for example, through internship and career resources or mentorship opportunities)
3. Research and Evaluation: One of the ways in which SEAD aspires to promote global health innovation is via systematic analysis of the challenges businesses face as they attempt to scale; this can be achieved through interdisciplinary research that identifies best practices for innovation growth and disseminate these to the field. This group works to identify how training and opportunities across Duke schools and programs may equip students to engage in SEAD-themed research through standard curricula, as well as design new opportunities with faculty and innovators for students to initiate and/or participate in global health innovation research projects and program evaluation.
Students who are part of the SEAD SAC will be expected to attend monthly meetings, take on at least one (team) project during the year, provide input into other SEAD student engagement efforts, and promote SEAD student engagement activities within their academic and extra-curricular programs.
