About us

The drive to create a social innovation zone at Queen’s is supported by the RECODE program, an initiative of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation. RECODE strives to support social innovation and entrepreneurship “ecologies” around post-secondary institutions.

Developing a social innovation zone at Queen’s is among the Centre for Social Impact’s key priorities. The zone will unfold over several phases beginning with a campus scan to determine what activities are already happening at Queen’s and in the wider Kingston and area community. An interactive summary of this scan can be found by visiting our living document: Queen’s University Campus Scan for Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship. Also see: “Zoning in on social innovation” in the Queen’s Gazette.
