Net Impact is an international non-profit organization dedicated to fostering a network of business leaders who use the power of business to create a positive net social, environmental, and economic impact. Founded in 1999, the chapter at the UC Davis Graduate School of Management is one of the most active in the country.
Davis Net Impact works with the GSM faculty and staff to offer courses in social entrepreneurship and sustainable business focusing on the “triple bottom line.” Our chapter regularly hosts speakers, organizes educational and volunteer events, organizes an annual welcome retreat for new and continuing students, and attends the annual National Net Impact Conference.
Friends and colleagues,
It is our pleasure to welcome you to Davis Net Impact, an MBA student club of dedicated student leaders working to create environmental and social change on our campus, in our community, and on our planet. We are excited to be a part of the largest, most active student club at the Graduate School of Management.
Davis Net Impact offers networking and educational opportunities every quarter that bring together current and past classmates while encouraging community involvement. From sustainable business symposia to “day on the job” events, and from community volunteering events to our annual welcome retreat, we provide our members and the GSM community with a wide variety of engaging events every quarter.
On campus, we collaborate with administration to incorporate social and environmental issues in the curriculum. We also have the opportunity to work extensively with other campus groups that share our vision, including student clubs such as the Clean Technology Club, the Community Consulting Group, and Women in Leadership, as well as research groups, including the Center for Investor Welfare, Child Family Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and the Energy Efficiency Center.
Please continue to explore our new website and learn more about Davis Net Impact.
