Net Impact Returns to Tulane

Net Impact returned to the Tulane campus last Thursday creating a scene in the Goldring/Woldenberg II courtyard on a gorgeous sunny day! Over 150 students enjoyed free food from Naked Pizza (a local socially responsible business), bottles of Honest Tea, and joined in on a crawfish boil; all to raise awareness about the organization and how students can do well in business by doing good for society.

The Tulane chapter of this international organization dissolved in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina, but with the persistence and patience of several students is coming back to campus in a big way. The Tulane Net Impact Club brings together students seeking to network and take action to foster a new generation of leaders who use the power of business to create a better world. The event inspired great lunch-time discussions about which companies are incorporating the values of social responsibility into their overall mission and how we as future business leaders can work collaboratively to further promote businesses with a purpose.

The Freeman School is truly a place where you can make “it” happen!! The passion of several students was propelled to greater heights due to the support of our fellow classmates. At the event we received a lot of interest in Net Impact and will spend the next few months of the semester taking on new projects to Magnify our Impact at Tulane.
