The University of Southampton
Social Impact Lab

Ideas, Innovation and ImpactCreating tomorrow's social leaders

Our mission is simple: to develop world-class social impact leadership. We do so through challenge-based education, available through the curriculum and outside it.

We believe that there are multiple pathways to systems change. Our programmes support social impact leaders who see themselves as Founders (launching their own ventures), Fixers (who enhance the capacity of existing social ventures) and Finders (who want to research outcomes-driven social innovation).
