The departments’ Social Innovation Weekend is a partnership with Miami University’s Global Health Studies and Social Work Programs. Social Innovation Weekend is a 48-hour weekend event that integrates key public and private stakeholder organizations at the state, county, and local city-level with students to solve significant societal issues like infant mortality and opioid addiction.

Moving forward, SIW is extending its reach to partner with other programs across campus such as Miami University’s Institute for Sustainability and the Environment and the Institute for Food, and with ecosystem partners like Flywheel Social Accelerator.
