Social Impact Requirement

All RISD Clubs, Organizations, and Teams will be required to demonstrate an instance of “social impact” within and beyond the RISD campus. Each organization is required to participate in one social impact activity per year.

Your CSI advisor will be help you determine a method of showing social impact or help you determine if something you have planned will qualify. Examples could include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Volunteering to set-up or clean up various events throughout the year
  • Participating in the MLK, Jr. Day of Service
  • Participating in a community service project listed in the Volunteer Clearinghouse
  •  Applying the direct themes and talents of your club to a community organization
  • Hosting an event or community based project for members of other organizations
  • Other ideas to be determined and approved by your CSI advisor

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.
