Wharton Social Impact Initiative, University of Pennsylvania
At Wharton, you’ll find a community of students who share your passion. And, you’ll find exceptional opportunities to learn and engage. Whether launching social enterprises, engaging in public service, enacting change in the business world, investing in the triple bottom line (people, planet, and profits), or supporting the causes they believe in most, Wharton students have the drive, knowledge, and skills to make a difference.
Wharton’s Social Impact Initiative (WSII), a hub for all activities, brings Wharton’s expertise, entrepreneurial spirit, and vast network to the complex intersection of business and social impact. WSII channels the drive of faculty, students, alumni, and external organizations to advance business-based solutions to enduring social problems. Enabling the integration of learning, experience and impact, and the development of research, outreach and student-centered programs, WSII furthers the commitment to make Wharton a “force for social good.” From funded summer internships to direct work with social enterprises, you’ll find the support you need to make an impact while here at Wharton.See more
