Stern International Volunteers
The Stern International Volunteers is an international community service experience designed to bring Stern’s 4-course Social Impact Core to life.
SIV Seminar Course (2 credits, Pass/Fail)
This seminar is a reflective discussion-based course, designed to enrich your experiences while in Peru. The overall objective of this course is to explore how business can create 'shared value' for the world's 'bottom billion.' We will seek that objective in several different ways, by identifying the root causes of poverty, developing an understanding of shared value, and participating in a service trip to Peru.
Faculty: Matt Statler & Melissa Iglio
Course Meeting Time: Tuesday, 9:30am-10:45am
Stern freshmen, sophomores and juniors in good standing with Stern and the University and will be based in New York City during the course term and throughout the service trip's entirety. (Seniors are not eligible because the spring service trip extends past graduation.)
