Abstract: While social entrepreneurship is growing more popular on college campuses, the field is so diverse and taught by such a wide mix of professors that it's difficult to determine what it is or how it's being taught. Although most people could agree on a definition of an "entrepreneurial mindset," it is much more difficult to define "a social entrepreneurial mindset." But if SE is going to grow and evolve, it's important for the field to develop and strong personality and an identifiable set of traits.
