Cheryl Brown

Associate Professor, Agricultural and Resource Economics M.S., Ph.D., Agricultural and Resource Economics, U. California, Berkeley

Dr. Brown’s proposed course will teach the concepts, legal structures, and funding opportunities related to social enterprises, with a particular focus on areas struggling with economic development.

Students will work in teams to create entrepreneurial solutions to place-based problems. The course will focus on Appalachia but any rural area that struggles with maintaining services or with population loss or above average rates of poverty or other social issues, such as the need for workforce development, would be potential study areas.
