Where Social Innovation Takes Form

The Lewis Institute

The Lewis Institute illuminates a path for students, faculty, and corporate partners seeking entry into the field of social innovation. 

We help create unexpected yet fruitful collaborations between those who see no distinction between social responsibility and profitability, leading to partnerships that result in business prosperity and societal improvement. Whether it’s the Social Innovation Lab—powered by Toyota—or Food Sol, we’re always pursuing unique ways to change the status quo.
