Achieve Social Impact
Social impact and the translation of knowledge is important to CWRU. To achieve a deeper impact, we must disseminate our research and teaching more widely beyond our campus, and we must embark on meaningful partnerships. To increase our external student and faculty activities, we must redefine our partnerships with industry and nonprofit organizations to distribute our educational assets. We must become a more distributed university—extending access to our classrooms and scholarship to communities that did not have it in the past. We must continue to broaden the impact of our students through their co-curricular and extracurricular activities.
