Colgate provides support for social entrepreneurship through programs and resources that are available to all types of ventures, both for-profit and non-profit. In addition, Colgate students can participate in the Clinton Global Initiative University program, which provides mentorship and resources for student leaders who are committed to take action in their community to address a pressing challenge.
Non-profits and social enterprises are welcome in the TIA Incubator. During this year-long program, you'll be paired with alumni and parent mentors who have experience in the social impact space and, with their guidance, work to develop your non-profit or social venture.
Clinton Global Initiative University
The Clinton Global Initiative University Network seeks students who are motivated to make a positive change in the areas of education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation, and public health. Students participate in a year-round program that includes mentorship, a social impact curriculum, funding, and events. They also have access to dedicated funds at Colgate for CGI-U participants.
Application rounds for CGI-U happen in the fall and spring. More information about the next application period will be posted here when available.
