Social Impact, Education, Law & Government

“Education is the great equalizer.”—M. Teresa Ruiz (C’98 – New Jersey State Senator and Chair of the Senate Education Committee)


The Social Impact, Education, Law & Government career community brings together members of the Drewniverse who are seeking pathways to prepare the next generation of leaders committed to bettering their communities, or pursuing careers and opportunities to advocate for issues they care about and serve the public good. This is a space where everyone can share ways of working in and with community-based organizations, government agencies, schools, and other organizations committed to improving the lives of others.

You are invited to share your experiences and resources that may support individual pathways, connect with current students to offer insight and advice, and post and inform the broader community of internship, community engagement, or job opportunities.
