The undergraduate chapter of Net Impact at the Carlson School was given a "gold" designation this year, while the graduate chapter was honored as a "silver." Net Impact is an international non-profit group with a mission to educate and equip students and professionals to use business skills to build a more socially and environmentally sustainable world.
Net Impact chapters receive a gold or silver designation by meeting a rigorous set of requirements based on their activities, programming, and membership reach. The designations are bestowed by Net Impact's central office in San Francisco.
At the Carlson School, the undergraduate chapter is responsible for Carlson Goes to Work, a day in which students, staff, and business professionals conduct business-focused community service at local non-profits. A focus of the graduate chapter is the Neighborhood Business Fellows Program, which is dedicated to helping spark the economy of the Cedar-Riverside community.
