IMPACT logoRather than being about a person in a position of authority, we focus on leadership as a process that requires the valuable input of a diverse group of people and strong collaboration in order to accomplish change for the common good. An individual or single act can be motivating, but it requires the power of many to truly create systemic change.

IMPACT: A Summit for Change is an annual program open to all students. It is an opportunity for students to identify challenges or issues on campus that you want to address. Students work in teams (with faculty and staff present to serve as resources) to explore the topic, brainstorm ideas for possible action, design a commitment to action, better understand a process for civic engagement, and leave feeling empowered to act.
