Membership BenefitsAs a club, we host a variety of events throughout the school year to promote Social Impact discussion and knowledge on campus.Educational:We provide a variety of educational events throughout the school year. For those members who are just getting interested in the Social Impact space, or for those who have first-hand experience but are looking to explore new areas, we offer "101" presentations that give a general overview of a specific aspect of Social Impact (e.g. Social Finance, Social Entrepreneurship, Impact Investing, etc). For those who may have more specific needs or have already decided in which area to focus, we offer relevant information in our weekly newsletters, as well as dedicated events delving deeper into specific topics in social impact.Career:The Social Impact Club dedicates a significant amount of resources to our graduate members.
