WE’RE REIMAGINING EVERYTHING ABOUT HOW WE CONCEPTUALIZE, TEACH, FUND, AND ENGAGE IN SOCIAL CHANGE

When we founded the Social Impact Lab in 2014, we committed to holding ourselves accountable to racial and social justice values in our teaching, research, grant making, and community engagement.

In 2021, we’re digging deeper into what that commitment demands of us as we redouble our effort to center communities’ lived experience and equity, justice, and anti-oppression in everything we do. 

What We Do

We prepare students for lives of purpose as citizen-leaders and social change agents by engaging them in experience-centered learning to develop three pillars of ethical and effective social change practice: Ways of Thinking, Ways of Being, and Ways of Doing.

Where We Do It

We work with students and partners in the classroom, across campus, in the community, and around the world.
