The University of San Diego joins leading universities from 14 nations in a total of 73 commitments to activate #MillionsofChangemakers in higher education. University of San Diego and University of Saint Thomas, both Contemporary Catholic institutions and committed Changemaker Campuses, join together to commit to growing the Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge to educate students to address humanity’s urgent challenges through social innovation as part of the new season of life of this global challenge. 

Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge participating universities, like South Korea’s Hanyang University, Universidad de Desarollo in Chile and Universidad Popular Autonoma del Estado de Puebla in Mexico, have also made changemaking commitments. Together, this coalition of world-wide universities is moving the needle on 21st century education using social innovation as an approach for addressing complex challenges.

The 2019-2020 edition of the Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge kicks off in December 2019 with the announcement of the participating universities. Stay tuned for updates by following @USDCPC!
