Social Impact Requirement

All RISD Clubs, Organizations, and Teams will be required to demonstrate an instance of “social impact” that moves beyond the RISD campus. CSI and Community Service believe that in order for our students to develop as active and responsible citizens they must show some level of engagement with the surrounding community.

Your CSI advisor will be help you determine a method of showing social impact or help you determine if something you have done would qualify. Examples could include participating in a community service project, designing a product that improves the capacity of a non-profit organization, or applying the direct themes and talents of your club to a community organization.

Fulfillment of this requirement will impact future club renewal and budget allocations. Completion of your social impact requirement must be logged with your advisor before the end of the year.
