Do Good Challenge

Driving a Culture of Social Impact and Practice of Doing Good

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. The Challenge has addressed issues from food insecurity in Prince George's County to the provision of emergency services to orphanages in Nepal, from climate change to childhood cancer, from medication recovery and delivery to residents in Ghana and Honduras to the creation of an emergency fall detection device, and so much more.

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 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.
