Foundations in Social Impact

The Dartmouth Center for Social Impact helps undergraduates develop the skills and knowledge necessary to become meaningful social impact leaders. There are a variety of ways to be involved.

With members of your new cohort, experience lively performances at the Hop, dynamic Human Centered Design workshops led by Thayer faculty, play social impact games at Tiltfactor, and more---along the way you will learn key themes of social impact leadership.
