2023-2024 Executive Board

About Us

The Social Entrepreneurship Association (SEA) is a campus organization bridging the gap between social responsibility and the business community. Our Executive Board acknowledges the gaps that exist between corporate drive and society leading to inequalities in wealth, access to resources, and other socioeconomic differences, however, we firmly believe that through social responsibility, advocacy, and philanthropy, we can address these issues. To make a positive impact locally and beyond, SEA organizes volunteering events, community service projects, fundraising initiatives, and strategic partnerships.
