The Haas Center for Public Service is pleased to open its doors to four social entrepreneurs who are spending spring quarter at the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law (CDDRL).

The inaugural cohort of Social Entrepreneurs in Residence at Stanford (SEERS), Ramzi Jaber, Taida Horozovic, Zawadi Nyong’o and Steve Williams are sharing office space at the Haas Center while engaging students in discussions about social reform and democracy. During their eight-week visit, they will bring direct activism to classroom learning by participating in "Challenging the Status Quo: Social Entrepreneurs Advancing Democracy, Development and Justice" (IR 142). Kathryn Stoner-Weiss, CDDRL deputy director and senior fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute (FSI), and Kavita Ramdas, executive director for the Program on Social Entrepreneurship at FSI, teach the course. The SEERS's work and activism engage human rights issues in Kenya, Palestine, Bosnia, and the United States.

Please give them a warm Haas welcome—their offices are located on the second floor. Read more about their visit at the CDDRL.
