Megan Kashner

My name is Megan Kashner and I’ve been here at Kellogg as Assistant Clinical Professor and Director of Social Impact since mid-January. You can read more about me and about Kellogg’s approach to social impact in a student blog post here, a Kellogg article here or an Equities.com piece here.

Here’s one quote that sums up our refreshed approach:
[ We know that when leaders bring their values into their career paths, they are positioning themselves to make a difference. Our students and alumni are interested in finding ways they can contribute to their communities and society, and the social impact team is here to support them. ]
  To explore all things impact more thoroughly, visit Kellogg’s new Social Impact website which provides a range of information about curriculum, experiential learning, social entrepreneurship, impact investing, student activities and competitions, alumni spotlights, career exploration and more.
