Research & Impact

At the University of Maryland, we are equipping and empowering a Do Good generation to apply their passions and ideas to make a positive impact in the world today.

Today’s college students are more passionate about social issues than ever before and are looking for ways to get involved and make a difference. As a result, demand for social impact education and experiences is at its highest point in decades, but opportunities to get involved are not widely available on most college campuses. That's where we come in. 

We believe that all students, regardless of their background, field of study or interests, are capable of creating effective change, making a powerful impact and innovating creative solutions to our world’s most pressing challenges.

We’re not just motivating students to do good. We’re equipping them with the skills, experiences and resources that result in a lifelong commitment to social impact.

Do Good Institute Programs and Research

The University of Maryland is uniquely qualified to educate and inspire the next generation of community and nonprofit leaders. I believe the unique opportunities created by the Do Good programs will change the lives of students who in turn will make positive change in our State in ways we cannot even imagine.
