Come Remake the World With Us

As people around the world grapple with major crises of health, racial and economic justice, climate change, and more, at the Kroc School we are having the difficult conversations and taking the steps necessary to lead social change and shape more peaceful and just societies. Hear from two Kroc School professors about why now is an excellent time to attend one of our graduate programs.

I think USD is light years ahead of many other schools in terms of innovation and entrepreneurship. Having a chance to participate in global social innovation, right here in San Diego? It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. – Brittany Kirk '20 (MA)
Coming to the Kroc School has helped me gain the practical skills for conflict analysis in conjunction with international negotiations. Now, when I see injustice, I feel compelled to speak up because I have the background and the context to deal with it. – Elizabeth Spangenberg
