About the Business for Good Clinic
Do you know what multi-national companies like Patagonia, Nespresso, and Danone, have in common with local companies like Meow Wolf, Positive Energy Solar, and Toas Ski Valley? They are all Certified B Corps. Certified B Corps are businesses that adhere to the most rigorous and transparent form of corporate responsibility certification, proving to their stakeholders that they use their business as a force for good.
First piloted in Fall 2021, this course combines best practices of North Carolina State’s nationally recognized program, feedback from our student and client participants, and the latest tools for learner centered teaching. Over 16-weeks the clinic pairs current and aspiring B Corps with interdisciplinary student teams to make lasting impacts in the New Mexico business community. The students begin the semester building skills and learning the fundamentals of B Corp certification, then will act as changemakers to help their clients use their business as a force for good using the B Impact Assessment as a guide. Clinic goals can range from B Corp certification, recertification, to any other impact objective.
The Business for Good Clinic is currently underway but will be held again in the Fall 2023 semester. Are you interested in learning more and making a difference? Apply today or attend one of our upcoming events
