Student Activities

Social Enterprise Association

The Social Enterprise Association (SEA) is a student-run network of emerging business leaders committed to using the power of business to create a better world. Founded in 1993 as Students for Responsible Business, the SEA has developed from a great idea shared by a few business students into a mission-driven network of 7,000 new leaders from 80 Net Impact chapters worldwide.

Net Impact

Thanks for checking out the undergraduate Net Impact chapter at NYU Stern!

We are a chapter of the international Net Impact organization – “a global network of leaders who are changing the world through business.”

Here at NYU Stern Undergrad, we hope to start fostering that network by exploring all the ways that doing business intersects with doing good. Our speaker series covers topics from corporate social responsibility to microfinance, alternative energy to economic development, from social entrepreneurship to sustainability.

In the past, we have had speakers from Citi, Grameen America, BRAC, DoSomething, and the Clinton Global Initiative University.
