At the Center for Social Value Creation, we're constantly challenging our students to find their own unique "moments of obligation" -- the experiences that will shape not only their future careers and lives, but the lives they have the potential to change in their roles as business leaders in the 21st century. Whether through our Social Venture Consulting Program, our Global Impact Program, or the many individual programs and opportunities we create for our students, the impact of your gift has the potential to be multiplied many times over.
