DifferenceMaker 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.
DifferenceMaker provides training, mentoring and other resources to ULAB students who wish to address social, environmental and economic problems in our community. In addition, our partner, IPDC Finance Limited, encourages the development of entrepreneurial ventures and leaders through competitions and leadership training programs.
