SUMA Net Impact

Net Impact: SUMA Chapter is the Master of Science in Sustainability Management Program’s Net Impact Chapter at Columbia University in the City of New York. The Sustainability Management Program at Columbia is co-sponsored by The Earth Institute and the School of Professional Studies.

SUMA Net Impact was launched in April 2013 and has since developed a growing reception base of over 800 students, including alumni.

The Mission

Our mission is to create a space for students to work on sustainability-related pro-bono consulting projects. The objective is for students to gain experience working in the field of sustainability, helping them become more effective agents of positive environmental and social change, while also benefiting the community. To help students tackle these projects, SUMA Net Impact also hosts sustainability events and workshops throughout the semester.

Faculty Advisor

Our faculty advisor is Dr Steve Cohen.

Join SUMA Net Impact in three ways:

  1. Become a project team member. We match you with a real business client to build your sustainability work experience on a one-semester long project.
  2. Participate in events throughout the year. Throughout the year, we’ll host events that encourage and build your sustainability network.
  3. Become a board member. As current board members graduate, every year we’ll elect new board members for the next 12-month term.
