Our Mission
The Social Impact Lab’s pedagogy, programs, and research challenge students to grapple with the complexity and ethical implications of entering communities with the intention to effect change. We engage students 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.

What We Do

Experiential Philanthropy Education

Experiential philanthropy is a teaching methodology that integrates real-dollar grant making into an academic course to illuminate its content and heighten students’ awareness of the practical challenges and ethical implications of investing in social change.

The Global Philanthropy Initiative

The Social Impact Lab is sharing its models and best practices with universities across the U.S. and around the world. We collaborate with them to develop courses that are socially, culturally, economically, and legally appropriate in their local contexts.

Knowledge Sharing 

We curate and host dynamic, interactive events that enable social change agents to share knowledge across sectors, disciplines, and generations.
