A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :

The California Institute for Social Business (CISB) in collaboration with Professor Muhammad Yunus was established as part of the CSU Channel Islands’ commitment to prepare students for the world they will inherit upon graduation. The CISB addresses the need for students to participate in global experiences and learn new methods of alleviating serious social ills that impact our region and the world. Building on the four pillars of the University, CISB exposes students to opportunities for learning about and addressing local and far-reaching social ills through the application, study and development of Professor Yunus’ notions of Social Business.
