Second Annual Business+Impact Showcase Features 35 Impact Organizations

Ann Arbor, September 11, 2019 – 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 second annual Business+Impact Showcase on Sept. 11 at 3 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, equality, 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. Michigan Ross Associate Dean for B+I Jerry Davis thanked the exhibitors for presenting a cross section of the many opportunities to engage in social impact and sustainability across campus.

He also mentioned that the Impact Gateway (, is the online version of this event, available 24-7 throughout the school year.  This gateway lists clubs, colleagues, current events, courses,  and more for student changemakers. It is the only resource of its kind at 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 causes. Michigan Ross, as the home of the Erb Institute, the Center for Positive Organizations and the William Davidson Institute, has already established itself as a school teaching that business can have a positive impact in the world; the growth of B+I will institutionalize these goals with research, practicum and partnerships.
