Ilitch School student org named finalist for Net Impact Chapter of the Year


The Wayne State University Chapter of Net Impact, a student organization within the Mike Ilitch School of Business, has been selected as a finalist for the Net Impact Chapter of the Year for 2020-21. The WSU chapter was recognized for going above and beyond in activities, member engagement and more from July 2020 to June 2021. In this timeframe, the WSU chapter hosted a number of sustainability-related webinars and participated in Net Impact programming.

The WSU chapter president during the award period was Ilitch School student Harold Wilcox. The chapter advisor is Associate Professor of Marketing Andrea Tangari.

Net Impact is an international nonprofit organization with more than 400 chapters worldwide. Its members are dedicated to using business as a force to create positive impact on society. The WSU chapter’s mission is to connect undergraduate and graduate students to make a difference on campus, in the community and around the world.

Net Impact selects up to four chapters from five categories (undergraduate, graduate, professional, international student and international professional) to be finalists for Chapter of the Year. Once finalists are announced, the selection process involves each chapter submitting a short video and a written component to provide more insight and details on the chapter’s accomplishments and impact. A panel of judges evaluates the materials and selects a winner for each category. Finalists receive recognition on Net Impact’s website, social media, and newsletter and at Net Impact Events. Winners will receive additional recognition and promotion through Net Impact channels, up to $400 to support chapter activities or to purchase chapter swag, and additional opportunities.
