About Us


Net Impact's mission is to improve the world by growing and strengthening a network of new leaders who are using the power of business to make a positive net social, environmental and economic impact.

Net Impact UMass Amherst enables and encourages members to use business for social good in their graduate education, communities, and future careers.


Our Vision

The University of Massachusetts-Amherst chapter brings together like-minded students seeking to build their personal networks and take concrete action to make a significant impact while simultaneously developing a new generation of leaders who use the power of business to create a better world.


Our Focus

Social & Professional Networking

  • We plan and sponsor events that provide our members with formal and informal opportunities to meet peers and professionals that share common interests and goals related to socially and environmentally responsible business.


  • We schedule speakers, organize activities, and pursue initiatives that encourage our members to acquire valuable skills and knowledge for use during (and after) their studies.
  • We promote the study of issues related to socially responsible business within the Isenberg School of Management and across the entire University of Massachusetts Amherst campus.

Community Impact

  • We build working relationships with local community organizations--private corporations, non-profits, and government agencies--to promote socially responsible business and environmental sustainability at UMass Amherst, in the Pioneer Valley, in the State of Massachusetts, and throughout the global community.

Professional Development

  • We provide career resources that enable our members to find jobs in fields geared toward to social impact and sustainability, and to connect students with a worldwide network of Net Impact members.

Our Membership

Membership is open to any UMass Amherst graduate student--full-time or part-time--interested in addressing social, environmental, and economic development issues with business solutions.


Our current membership includes public policy, engineering, and business students. Net Impact UMass Amherst aims to provide interdisciplinary collaboration fostering relationships and interaction among students and faculty.
