The Community Leadership And Social Innovation Centre (CLASIC) supports the university's social innovation projects related to the community. 

We are a one-stop centre that curates, optimises and tracks community initiatives and projects across the Singapore Institute of Technology. You will benefit from the interdisciplinary knowledge, expertise and skills of our faculty, students and staff across different academic clusters.

Benefits of community projects

  • Enhance the quality of life of beneficiaries
  • Give back to the community by students and faculty 
  • Increase students' understanding of societal needs 
  • Complement faculty expertise and their professional practice

Our vision

The vision of the Centre is to become the partner of choice for industry and community partners and to help SIT be the partner of choice among the institutes of higher learning when it comes to community-related projects and initiatives.
