DifferenceMaker is a Campus-Wide Program that Engages UMass Lowell Students


Through the Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, along with affiliated faculty and other campus programs, the university has introduced a range of activities geared toward expanding our students' understanding of how they can make a difference in the world.

The DifferenceMaker program sponsors specific programs and activities that support students in solving big problems through innovative and entrepreneurial action.

We already know our students do make a difference, our many successful alumni are evidence of this, but rather than waiting for future graduates to discover their chosen career path, we introduce academic and extracurricular programs that specifically engage our students in innovative and entrepreneurial problem-solving.

The DifferenceMaker program provides training, mentoring and other resources to UMass Lowell students who wish to address social, environmental and economic problems in our community. In addition, our partner, Entrepreneurship for All, generously supported by the Deshpande Foundation, encourages the development of entrepreneurial ventures and leaders through competitions and leadership training programs.
