    Net Impact at Darden strives to inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world. Our members share a passion for corporate responsibility, social enterprises, nonprofit management, community and international development, and environmental sustainability. We are part of a global network with more than 300 chapters on six continents and thousands of student and professional members.

    Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.
