Advancing scholarship in the theory and praxis of technology-based social entrepreneurship is essential to mainstream this emerging field and engage more faculty and students, with the ultimate objective of fostering social enterprise. Towards that goal, students and faculty conduct research in several areas under the broad umbrella of Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship. Research areas (and resulting publications) encompass affordable design, design thinking, social entrepreneurship theory and pedagogy, systems thinking, Food Value Chains (FVCs), post-harvest technologies, telemedicine systems, cellphones, social networks & trust, indigenous knowledge systems, development ethics, grassroots diplomacy, educational technologies, educational assessment tools, women in engineering, and informal lending systems! Since 2008, over 110 peer-reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings have been published with over 40 more in the pipeline. The majority of these articles have undergraduate students as lead authors.
