Who Are We?
In 2012, the UBC Social Enterprise Club emerged as an idea cultivated by passionate, innovative and motivated students looking for ways to change the business world. Since then, SEC has engaged thousands of students and grown to become an inter-faculty club that seeks to bridge disciplines and unite students with social enterprise to create change makers.
