Changemaker Fest is a week dedicated to defining, exploring, and putting change into action. Join us throughout the week of November 5 – 9, 2012, to become a part of an energized environment encouraging everyone to be a Changemaker and to celebrate our one-year designation as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus.
In recognition of our institution’s commitment to ethical leadership and to the building of a socially just world, the University of San Diego was designated as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus, alongside 19 other nationally prestigious universities. As a Changemaker Campus, USD aspires to engage economic, social, and environmental change around the world. Changemaker FEST is a student driven week of celebration, dedicated to exploring the many ways in which students, faculty, and community leaders can become practitioners of changemaking on a daily basis, tackling change within oneself as well as on local, national and global levels. In the spirit of a Changemaker Campus, many USD centers, institutes and programs have collaborated in the design of the diverse activities and will be actively engaged in the events.
Every day of the week provides you with opportunities to reflect, engage and learn. All activities are free and many of them also provide food!
On Thursday, November 8th, from 12:15-2:30PM we will be hosting a grand Changemaker FEST finale, a campus-wide gathering and celebration of all that our community is doing and our commitment to creating positive change in the world.

"The Changemaker Festival is a perfect example of how we are all working together, as a campus, to reflect the change making spirit of USD."
