Education & Philanthropy
Meeting the challenges of the new millennium
SAS CEO Jim Goodnight refers to education as the engine of economic growth. By supporting efforts that prepare more graduates for college, work and success in the 21st century, SAS continues to play a vital role in the global community.
For the last 25 years, SAS has made education its primary philanthropic focus. As a company, we believe that quality public education is a critical imperative for our children and for the country in this competitive, global economy. We are actively engaged in ensuring that all students have the support necessary to reach their full potential and become productive citizens.
In North Carolina and around the world, SAS targets education initiatives in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to ensure the next generation of innovators has the knowledge and skills to succeed. SAS also supports thoughtful and evidence-based approaches to increasing third-grade reading proficiency, which is critical to ensuring students leave high school ready for college and careers.
Data for Good
Analytics helping humanity
Our commitment to innovation means we believe technology advancements push boundaries, challenge the status quo and change the way we live. But it’s more than just technology innovation. At SAS, we also believe that social innovation is just as important. That means working with organizations to identify areas where we can make an impact together, then developing solutions and processes that result in positive changes for a community, a city, a state and even around the world. Our corporate social innovation efforts help us focus our purpose on making the world better for all.
A natural extension of this social innovation is our participation in the Data for Good movement, where we seek opportunities to improve how people live. By using SAS Analytics, we address humanitarian issues like poverty, health, human rights, education and the environment. Making a difference in the world is at the heart of what SAS does, and just another example of using our software to serve the greater good. Through these stories, learn how SAS is being socially innovative and using data to change lives.
Data for Good
Our growth for more than 40 years proves that caring for our people, our planet and our communities is the right way to do business.
Jim Goodnight, CEO of SAS
