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 unfolds over several phases, beginning with a 2015 campus scan to determine existing activities happening at Queen’s and in the wider Kingston and area community. A summary of the scan can be found in the following report: Queen’s University Campus Scan for Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship. Also see: “Zoning in on social innovation” in the Queen’s Gazette.
