In a wheel, a hub is the center where the spokes are inserted. At the University of San Diego, the Changemaker Hub is a connector of partners active in social change. We believe that a community of Changemakers is nurtured by working together. These are some of our partners:
We collaborate with Associated Students in the ideation and implementation of the Changemaker Fest and the AS Changemaker Student Committee represents the student voice for all Changemaking initiatives at the Hub.
|Mulvaney Center For Community, Awareness, and Social Action
The hub works with CASA supporting student service initiatives, in the development of the Changemaker Student Club designation and ongoing projects like the Changemaker Hub
|Office of Sustainability
The Challenge Portfolio continues to grow in 2013 with the USD ONE Challenge. We are partnering with the Office of Sustainability to encourage the entire USD community in generating ideas to tackle the issue of Environment, wasteful production and consumption.
|Center for Educational Excellence
During the 2012-2013 academic year, we are an active part of CEE’s Changemaker Professional Learning Community, in which a group comprising of 17 faculty and staff will discuss ways to integrate social change content into courses, programs and pedagogy.
|Center for Peace and Commerce
The Hub partners with the CPC by supporting the Social Innovation Challenge inviting all students social innovators to propose ideas for achieving the 4 Ps- People, Planet, Peace and Profit.
UM works with The Hub by sponsoring the Summer Changemaker Fellows and by offering a variety of opportunities for students to foster change off-campus, on-campus and in themselves.
The Changemaker Hub, in partnership with the Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness, and Social Action, launched The Impact Linda Vista Initiative in Fall 2013. Sponsored through a grant from U.S. Bank, the initiative seeks to strengthen the Linda Vista community through co-development of innovative social initiatives by USD students and Linda Vista residents, where research, learning, and service are integral components. This community-collaborative learning program directly impacts Linda Vista residents while building a committed student body prepared to make change in very personal and effective ways. Learn more.
