Net Impact is a national nonprofit organization and we are proud to represent the UNH chapter. The mission of Net Impact is to inspire students to think beyond the financial bottom line and work towards achieving a triple bottom line (economic, social, and environmental) as they move forward with their careers and endeavors. We use our diverse majors and talent to come up with innovative solutions to environmental and social issues in our community. These ideas are organized into projects, which we enter into Net Impact competitions and challenges. In addition, we devote our time to community service and fundraising for our projects. Net Impact UNH also works in close partnership with the Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise (CSIE), an interdisciplinary center offering high impact experiences for UNH students to apply their academic learning in real-world settings.
