Social Impact

build the world you want to see.

One of the hallmarks of being at a leading research university is that what you’re learning in the classroom is relevant to the real world. You’ll be encouraged to think about current and emerging issues you care about and find ways to solve them.

If you’re passionate about social advocacy, political activism, or community service, you’ll have plenty of resources for turning your ideas into action. The Pava Marie LaPere Center for Entrepreneurship, the Social Innovation Lab, the Center for Social Concern, and the Community Impact Internships Program can connect you with opportunities and funding to bring about change in areas that matter to you.
