I am pleased to announce UC San Diego's Changemaker Week, January 18 - 24, 2020.
Changemaker Week will showcase the outstanding changemaking work taking place across our campus. It will provide interested students, faculty, staff, and alumni the chance to explore opportunities for creating change through social enterprise development, community engagement, social justice, and service learning.
The week kicks off on Saturday, January 18 with UC San Diego's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service (https://mlkday.ucsd.edu/?p=dayofservice). Other activities include tree planting, networking, dialogue circles and a keynote address by Alex Counts, founder of the Grameen Foundation entitled “How to Change the World Without Losing Your Mind.” To register, please visit: https://bit.ly/2FRijD2.
A complete schedule of Changemaker Week activities is available here: http://changemaker.ucsd.edu/events/changemaker-week/schedule.html.
UC San Diego was named a Changemaker Campus in 2017 by Ashoka (https://www.ashoka.org/en-US/home), the world's largest network of social innovators, for its commitment to campus-wide excellence in social innovation and changemaking. UC San Diego holds the distinction as the first UC campus to receive Changemaker designation for providing students with interdisciplinary, entrepreneurial and solutions-oriented skills to succeed in today's complex world. Fewer than 50 universities around the globe have earned this distinction.
Please join us in celebrating UC San Diego's leadership in social innovation and changemaking at Changemaker Week 2020.
