What is IMPACT?
The acronym—Individuals Motivating Progress Across Communities Together—defines the primary goal of IMPACT club; a collective of multidisciplinary members who garner resources to promote personal, educational, and career growth within their local region. IMPACT is focused on developing a diverse community and welcomes all students with an interest in creative process and collaboration.

Vice President 2021
In 1.5 years IMAPCT supported 25 student artists during the pandemic in creating a podcast, two zine collections, conducted field trips to SF, and curated four group shows in midtown Sacramento; we bridged the gap between college learning and workforce experience that was otherwise difficult to obtain during the pandemic.
IMPACT created a supportive group of ceramicists, sculptors, printmakers, painters, and faculty; who helped continue our dedication to learning and development during this crucial time.
