The Impact Competition empowers students to create and implement real solutions to pressing social issues in their community.
Participating universities are able to offer a unique learning opportunity, strengthen ties with local communities, and nurture alumni & donor relationships.
Students enjoy an immersive learning experience that allows them to more deeply understand the non-profit sector and potentially win a cash prize.
Participating universities choose a competition topic based on the most pressing needs of their local off-campus community.
Next, a non-profit whose mission aligns with the chosen topic is selected as the competition partner.

Non-Profits and their Communities
The Impact Competition allowed me to bring a creative solution based on what I have been learning in the classroom to the real world…I am looking forward to implementing our idea at the local Bloomington non-profit CJAM throughout the next year.
