Yunus Social Business Centre @ Becker College

Solving social issues. Transforming lives.

The Yunus Social Business Centre @ Becker College is the first and only one of its kind at a U.S. institution of higher education.

The Centre is a hub for exploration, innovation, and leadership. We offer partnership development for businesses and nonprofits, and experiential service learning opportunities.

WE SEE poverty, unemployment and other social challenges as opportunities to inspire new ideas, new businesses, and new solutions. We always take creative, compassionate and sustainable actions to solve social challenges.

WE ENGAGE with a cross sector of people — students, faculty, staff, and community and business leaders — to feel, think., and act in ways that improve the quality of life for our neighbors near and far.
