Social Impact Scholars

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

The Social Impact Scholars program gives inquisitive, thoughtful students the opportunity to make an impact on the world while they work toward their college degree.

Launched in 2018, the Social Impact Scholar program integrates three key elements of a Champlain College education—a professional education, a strong liberal arts complement, and an emphasis on preparing global citizens—with the passion many of our students have for creating positive social change. Social Impact Scholars don't just prepare to thrive in their professional careers, they push their professions towards greater equity, justice, and responsibility. Social Impact Scholars do not just learn to become a part of global citizenry, they make conscious efforts to address and solve the numerous social and political problems that plague our communities, whether that be our campus, one's home town, or the planet as a whole.
