In December 2018, a Marquette student who attended the Impact National Conference as a High School student invited 14 classmates to join her in Atlanta for the Impact National Conference that year. After attending the conference 8 students came together to be trained and equipped to start a chapter on Marquette campus Fall of 2019
Impact at UW-Madison has been on the campus on and off since 2002. The chapter died out for two year (2011-13). In 2012, Kesha Wilkinson, an UW-Madison alumni, felt the leading of the Lord to assist in the relaunch of the chapter. Along with three UW-Madison students, she relaunched the chapter the Fall of 2013. The University Gospel Choir is also supported by Impact on this campus.

Supported by Cru Staff, a black Cru student start a small group for other black students on campus. In 2016, the leaders met Kesha Wilkinson, the current Wisconsin City Director, and expressed their interest in becoming a Impact Chapter which was launched Fall of 2017.
Founded in 2010, Ignite became a bible study on Whitewater campus for black students. After being active for 7.5 year it die out. Although it was no longer on campus students still had a strong desire to see the Ignite on campus again but not just as a bible student but also as a movement that seeks to share the gospel on campus and be apart of reflecting Christ on campus and the surrounding communities. Rhamia Jones and Tatyanna McLemore, both alumni of UW-Whitewater and Ignite, relaunched Ignite as Ignite Impact the Fall of 2019.
