When & Where
SFSU Center for Sustainable and Ethical Business and Net Impact at SFSU
As part of San Francisco State University's longstanding commitment to equity and social justice, the CoB has created a regional Center for Ethical and Sustainable Business to leverage the growing momentum among conventional businesses to implement socially and environmentally responsible business practices.
The new center, located at the University's downtown campus in the heart of San Francisco, serves as an innovative force for advancing social and environmental stewardship, and acts as a hub for research, teaching, and outreach to the Bay Area business community.
Net Impact at SFSU brings fresh ideas and a cross-disciplinary perspective to promoting the causes of Net Impact – that is, using the power of business to create a better world, both on campus, in the community, and in our careers.
Net Impact at SFSU has been recognized the past two years as a Silver-achieving Net Impact chapter based on our active membership and array of events, speakers and programs.
