Organizing design challenges, seminars, workshops, and other interactive and collaborative activities, the Consortium helps schools, help their students, Make Impact.
Through collaborations with industry partners, foundations, government, NGO, and other public sector and not-for-profit organizations, the Consortium ensures that students address real-world issues, while building in-demand skills.
Global networking. Leveraging leading practices. Fostering innovation, and accelerating economic development on and near campuses:
These are key elements of the wider purpose of the Make Impact Consortium.
Our vision is to build the environment and resources through which academic and corporate members share best practices, and to facilitate synergistic relationships to attract, educate, support, employ and deploy the next generation of innovative and entrepreneurial makers.
The Make Impact Consortium is a global organization delivering Design, Innovation, Makerspace and Entrepreneurial programs. Organized by MIT, Consortium member universities partner with businesses and public sector organizations to create opportunities that help students Make Impact.
