What is Social Impact?

We view social impact as a significant positive change that addresses a pressing social challenge.  To implement transformational social change, leaders must engage the public, private, and nonprofit sectors as well as diverse disciplines.

What Do We Do?

The Center for Social Impact provides leaders with practical skills and insight to tackle complex social challenges and catalyze a career in social impact. Action-based programs and events offer students multidisciplinary and cross-sector collaboration to deliver social impact.
