Become Tomorrow's Responsible Business Leader

Just two years ago, Net Impact brought the movement to change the world through business to undergraduate campuses. Today, with 40 undergrad chapters, our undergrad members are gaining the knowledge, leadership skills, and connections they need to become tomorrow’s responsible business leaders, social entrepreneurs, nonprofit managers, and more. Net Impact is currently in the process of starting an undergraduate chapter and is looking for leaders and students to get involved.

By becoming a part of this growing movement of undergraduate students, Net Impact can help you:

  • Enrich your educational experience by learning more about issues at the intersection of business, society, and the environment, while making friends with students who share similar interests.
  • Begin creating your professional network that includes leading experts who are using business to improve the world.
  • Gain leadership experience and boost your resume by getting involved in your chapter in a leadership position or by helping out with chapter events.
  • Identify a career for good by learning about jobs in fields such as corporate responsibility and environmental sustainability and through utilizing Net Impact’s career resources, including a job board with full-time positions and internships.
  • Make a difference on your campus and in the community through programs like Campus Greening.
