Social Impact

SOCIAL IMPACT AT IE UNIVERSITY

Successful transformation of a community relies on individual behavioral change: what I do is a reflection of who we are. At IE Univesity, we strongly believe that when staff, faculty and students learn about issues, are supported to tackle social challenges, and connect with each other, we all benefit. Social action becomes a chain reaction of positive change, enhancing communities and helping our students become active citizens for life.
