UNM Anderson Center for Responsible Entrepreneurship

Purpose & Mission


Embrace our place – Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico – to bring the blend of context, culture, history, and change together, enabling holistic and ethical leadership in business. Create an engaging and learning community through our art, science, culture and nature.

Social Entrepreneurship

Create a community where entrepreneurs can learn, launch and scale their for-profit social enterprises.

Convening and Collaborating

Be a center of convening for environmental, social, and governance changemakers – with an attitude of collaboration and support of mutual goals and initiatives in New Mexico. Connect with the global network of sustainability centers to bring best practices of promoting stakeholder capitalism to New Mexico and share Santa Fe’s efforts to this growing body of work.

Place-Based, Context-Based Research
