The Daily Pennsylvanian

Penn students of today can become social impact leaders of tomorrow through a new Wharton initiative.

The Turner Social Impact Society launched this past October as part of the Wharton Social Impact Initiative. The goal of the TSIS is to create an interdisciplinary community across Penn through which students can be exposed to social impact opportunities and cultivate their passions for social change.

The TSIS is composed of select undergraduate students across Penn who are accepted into the program either as Members or Fellows. Members enter the Society to discover their passions for social impact, whereas Fellows come in already having developed expertise in a certain field of social impact. The application process utilizes a traditional paper application with GPAs and transcripts, but students are also required to elaborate on their passion for social impact.
