The Space to: IMPACT

Five of the ten Impact & Launch Competition finalists participate in Impact, Wofford's unique four-year scholarship program in which students develop projects that impact the world around them. Impact students learn project management, design thinking and the consultative approach to problem solving - key skills for the workplace and for life. They'll use these skills to develop a new project each year, or to grow and refine complex projects over the course of several years. 

All of these projects will be demonstrated in The Galleria throughout the competition.
