This year we are hard at work to make our next Summit bigger, better, and more impactful!

With a few years experience under our belt, we’re expecting to bring in over 250 attendees this year by expanding our reach on NIU’s campus, to other colleges and high schools, and in the professional social sector.

We’re excited to continue our elevator pitch competition where participants will be able to pitch their business idea to the conference, where a winning team picked by attendees will take home prize money!
3 Goals: Educate, Inspire, Network

CAUSE developed the Social Impact Summit with the goals to:
students and social practitioners about the applications of social entrepreneurship
students and social practitioners to find ways to enlarge their societal and environmental impacts or just plain get started in the social space
Facilitate networking
among students and social practitioners who are passionate about making a difference and changing the world
Why Social Entrepreneurship?
Chew on these facts for a second:
1.4 Billion people live on less than $1.25 per day
2.5 Billion people lack access to a supply of safe, secure clean water
21,000 Children die each day from preventable causes
14 Billion pounds of garbage is dumped into the ocean each year

You get the picture. We could go on and on with facts about the incredible societal and environmental issues our world faces. We can’t rely on governments and corporations to solve these issues for us. We believe that it’s up to common people to come up with uncommon solutions. It’s up to social entrepreneurs to create innovative solutions to turn the challenges our world faces into opportunities for people around the world.

Why Unreasonable?
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
-George Bernard Shaw

CAUSE is not okay with the status quo in the world. We challenge ourselves to be unreasonable and help the world progress to a place where everyone has the opportunity to pursue a fulfilling life.

What We Do!
We’re a growing organization that’s looking to expand our initiatives and impact. Our members are involved in a plethora of social impact work.
Our accomplishments include:
