UCI students learn about the giving process and its effects on institutions and society through the new experimental philanthropy course, while allocating real funding to nonprofits. Eight nonprofits were awarded funding through this course this year.
“UCI seeks to foster leadership and citizenship in our students,” says Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning and Dean of Undergraduate Education, Michael Dennin. “Students who have completed an experiential philanthropy course report they are likely to give more and to give more thoughtfully than they would have prior to the course.”
