CESR Fellows
  

Our Mission

CESR Fellows, a Net Impact affiliated club, is a student group designed for all CU undergraduates who have a passion for values-driven business and using business to make a positive social and environmental impact. In becoming a CESR Fellow, you join a community of like-minded peers, faculty and corporate executives who share your passion and who look forward to networking with you to explore the ways you too can do business differently.

Our purpose is to connect students with resources and organizations that relate to CESR's three focus areas (business solutions to environmental challeneges, diveristy and inclusion, and ethical leadership) in order to showcase how businesses are dealing with these issues and create visibility for socially and environmentally conscious business. We facilitate professional networking opportunities for students, professional skills workshops, and other programming to promote student success within this field. Through everything we do, we work to build a strong community of those who are passionate about bettering local and global communities.
