31 Universities, 17 Countries and Even More

Fowler GSIC participants 2019

The 2020 Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge (Fowler GSIC) is destined to be our largest yet with 31 Universities convening in June 2020, representing 17 countries. These universities represent leaders in Social Innovation and have taken the first step towards helping their students reach their greatest potential with the Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge.

The tremendous growth of the Fowler Social Innovation Challenge provides further evidence that what we started almost ten years ago was not only the right thing to do, but the trajectory of this program has had immense positive ripple efforts far beyond our campus. While not every student is a winner, every student is a success story - a greater emphasis on business for good for students has translated to careers of our Challenge alumni with a stronger commitment to continue this charge in their professional life. 

2020 yields a new decade, new beginnings and new challenges. We could not be more thrilled to have over 30 Universities rise to challenge and join us in encouraging the next generation of leaders, movers and shakers to do the same. See the participating universities below.
