Western Center for Social Impact and Innovation
The Western Center for Social Impact and Innovation is Miami's interdisciplinary hub for student engagement with issues of social justice within the context of global change. Programming through the Western Center encourages students and faculty from every subject area to explore complex questions and to seek solutions with community partners in the public and private sectors. This initiative honors the rich history of social activism on the Western campus by energizing today's students with a spirit of social responsibility.
The Western Center for Social Impact and Innovation is open to students of all majors across Miami, though it is closely tied to the Western Program for Individualized Studies. The Western Program is dedicated to developing students as independent thinkers with the skills to address the complex challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
