Impact Linda Vista Initiative (ILVI) 2019-2020 Participants Announced

The Changemaker Hub, in partnership with the Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness, and Social Action, are pleased to announce the participants in the Impact Linda Vista Initiative (ILVI) for the 2019-2020 academic year. Currently in its sixth year and funded primarily by a grant from U.S. Bank, the overall purpose of ILVI is to bring USD faculty and students together with community partners to co-create and develop innovative and sustainable course-based collaborations in Linda Vista. These collaborations extend across a wide range of disciplines and academic units on campus and across multiple sectors in the community. They collectively aim to create for positive and meaningful social change. Kevin Guerrieri (Languages, Cultures and Literatures) is the Faculty Co-Director, and Blake Hofstad is the Community Co-Director of ILVI.
