Liz Morales, an ethnic studies and communications major, has devoted herself and her education to create opportunities for under-served populations in higher education.
“I realized entrepreneurship is more than just a product-based entrepreneur. It’s someone that wants to change something in the world,” Morales said. “That’s what social entrepreneurship does. It makes people think. It makes people passionate.”
Through the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute she started a program called the Lassonde Ambassadors, which works with first-generation, non-traditional, undocumented students on and off campus to promote innovation.
“It’s been amazing to surround myself with people from all different majors, with a common goal of building a better institute and better world,” Morales said.
