Ivey Connects is a student-led organization working to inspire students at the Ivey Business School to contribute to the societies in which they operate - a vital aspect of the school's mission statement. Ivey students have a wealth of resources that, if harnessed, translate to great potential to effect positive change in the community. Ivey Connects provides opportunities for students to give their time through volunteerism and fundraising efforts, and their talent - management or otherwise - to those in need in the community.
Our organization aims to enhance the educational experience of Ivey students in the area of social responsibility, and to advance the social health of the not-for-profit agencies in our community through volunteer efforts. Our mandate is to:
- Harness the talent and energy of Ivey students to make a positive impact on non-profit organizations and the community;
- Develop better business leaders who will contribute to the communities in which they will operate by exposing students to leading for-profit organizations that are responsible members of the community;
- Develop a strong sense of business ethics and community involvement;
- Encourage students to think about sustainable development, corporate social responsibility and community involvement from a business perspective.
