Social Impact Career Resources

The Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation works with Chicago Booth’s Career Services to support the professional ambitions of students and alumni. We also provide hands-on learning and networking opportunities, so our community can learn about social sector career paths.

“The community at Booth helped me stay committed to my social impact passion and career goals. From the team at the Rustandy Center to the financial support I received from the Breslauer Scholarship, I was never doing this alone.”

—Madeline King, ’17, Investment Associate, Charter School Growth Fund
