The new Do Good Accelerator will provide promising Do Good ventures (projects, nonprofits, businesses) with leadership coaching and mentoring, creative community space, networking opportunities, financial support and educational training.
The annual, campus-wide Do Good Challenge inspires students to pursue fearless ideas, spark innovative solutions, and create social impact for today's most pressing problems. Students from across campus spend the academic year advocating, fundraising, volunteering, supporting, and developing solutions for the social issues they care about. The Challenge culminates in a Finals event where six teams pitch their project or venture and the impact they've made for the chance to win a share of more than $20,000.
Do Good Ideas wants to help you create change for the issues, ideas, and communities you care about. Whether you have a passion to address educational disparities, a drive to understand climate change, or an idea to spark racial justice, Do Good Ideas helps you harness your passion, deepen your understanding, and moves you to action.
The Do Good Faculty Fellows program supports faculty members as scholars, teachers, advisors, and educational leaders who want to explore social innovation broadly and deeply. Fellows will consider how students can engage in social innovation in its various forms (e.g. service-learning, civic engagement, philanthropy) and how they can engage students in their courses to address social problems. During the program, the Do Good Faculty Fellows will propose, and ultimately implement, an innovative Do Good course or curriculum within their respective specializations, departments, colleges, schools, or units.
Through Philanthropy Fellows and the Global Philanthropy Service Fellowship, the Institute is creating robust experiences for students to immerse with and address significant international philanthropy and development issues through hands-on field-based research and study abroad programs; regularly interact with top leaders and philanthropists; and directly employ their skills to advance the work of nonprofits and foundations.
The Institute is dedicated to helping students become innovative and effective professionals in the field of global philanthropy, international development, and nongovernmental leadership and management. Students extend their formal curriculum through international immersion and deepen their professional portfolio through field experiences and study abroad programs.
