Changemaker Fest 2013

What is the Changemaker FEST?
The Changemaker FEST is a week dedicated to exploring, defining and putting social change into action. The USD community comes together on the week of September 30-October 4, 2013 to become energized by an environment that encourages everyone to be a Changemaker. Together, we celebrate USD’s third-year being designated as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus by taking time to learn about many opportunities and best practices for engaging in social transformation around the world. This is a USD community driven celebration in which students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and community leaders have the chance to share how they are practitioners of changemaking on a daily basis, starting with how we grow as individuals to how we go beyond ourselves to be active agents in shaping local, national and global communities.
