Impact Community

What is the Impact Community?

The Impact through Science, Technology, and Social Good or Impact Living-Learning Community (LLC) is a new LLC and initiative open to all first-year students who are interested in exploring issues of diversity, community engagement, and sustainability. Impact will incorporate elements of existing Institute Diversity programs (events, mentoring, tutoring, community service, and community building), will provide opportunities for informal discussions among residents of the community and faculty/staff partners, and will enhance students’ intellectual development through participation in common courses. Field Residence Hall will be renovated and will house the new Impact LLC students.
