This will be an opportunity to share with van Kirk your interests and activities related to social change as well as ongoing or planned efforts in USD departments. There will also be a chance to learn from him a sense of the ways in which Ashoka Fellows (there are over 2,000 around the world) interact with faculty, students, and staff at other universities. The goal is to have a stimulating discussion and share ideas about social change in relation to activities within USD. The intention of the events is to be as inclusive as possible and, ultimately, to facilitate and highlights USD's involvement in the process of fostering social change.
