Abstract

At CityU, we have applied and adapted the original service leadership and management framework to our unique approach of blending service leadership to an integrated framework of social innovation, entrepreneurship and student service leadership. The CityU approach embraces a holistic model of social innovation and social change underpinned by our belief that enduring and impactful change is a complex phenomenon. To produce sustainable change in an academic setting, the change model has to be embedded in the multiple missions of a university. These missions include knowledge transmission, knowledge creation and evaluation, innovating new ideas, and service application. Each of these strands is inter-related and mutually reinforcing. Our missions are achieved through a four-prong program which includes: professional and academic education, research and knowledge transfer, social innovation incubtion, and student service leadership. The paper presents the program highlights and concludes that its experimentation in service leadership and entrepreneurship has achieved good results in the last two years.
