Tommiepreneurs For Social Change

Through the Schulze School of Entrepreneurship at St. Thomas, we empower students from all disciplines with tools to innovate for social impact.

At St. Thomas, students and alumni solve more than just business problems. They use entrepreneurship as a way to look at the world. By using empathy as a force for good to build equitable communities, raise awareness of societal issues, and seek transformative solutions.

From coursework and competitions to mentorships and accelerators, the Schulze School of Entrepreneurship empowers Tommies to transform their passions into actions. Explore some of the ways our social entrepreneurs are advancing the common good.
