Fielding and Social Innovation
Social innovation is a novel solution to a problem that is more effective, sustainable, or just than current approaches. Since 2002, Fielding’s Institute for Social Innovation (ISI) has helped individuals as well as nonprofit, business, and government organizations address societal problems via research, professional development, and organizational consulting. ISI professionals include Fielding alumni, faculty and students who conduct action-oriented research, train organizational leaders, lead community dialogues, and provide customized organizational consulting.
“ISI’s research team produced an informative case study for our organization that supported the value of year-round citizen engagement and community-based social action strategies.” — Anne Summers, Executive Director, Brico Fund
