Ann Arbor, September 15, 2021 – As part of Business+Impact’s mission to make students aware of all the impact opportunities across campus, B+I welcomed incoming and returning students to its fourth annual Business+Impact Showcase on Tues, Sept. 14 from 11 am – 1 pm at Michigan Ross. New and returning students from across campus met with 35 exhibiting organizations from U-M in areas of interest like social justice, diversity,  sustainability, social entrepreneurship and economic development.

Students visited booths for student clubs, Ross centers, and U-M-wide initiatives. A complete list of exhibitors appears at the end of this article. B+I Faculty Director, Jerry Davis thanked the exhibitors for presenting a cross section of the many opportunities to engage in social impact and sustainability across campus.

The event also promoted the Impact Gateway (, basically the online version of this event, available 24-7 throughout the school year.  This gateway lists clubs, colleagues, current events, courses,  and more for all student changemakers across the University of Michigan.

The Business+Impact initiative hosts this event annually in order to provide new students with a roadmap for work in sustainability, social issues, poverty, economic development, human rights, and other important causes. Michigan Ross, as the home of the Erb Institute, the Center for Positive Organizations and the William Davidson Institute,  and others, has already established itself as a school teaching that business can be a force for good in the world; Business+Impact institutionalizes these goals with research, practicum and partnerships.
