Student Committee

2016 Changemaker Student Committee

What is the CSC?
A group of passionate students from all over campus organizing and supporting a culture of changemaking on campus: an environment where everyone feels empowered to make a difference in their communities.
• Represents the voice of USD’s student body
• Sees changemaking as a practice and focus on co-creating a community with the entire campus
• Builds bridges between campus orgs, clubs, centers and institutes
• Strives to develop a stronger sense of belonging, a deeper collaboration between student entities and a stronger connection with each other

Examples of CSC initiatives:
• My Story events- focused on featuring and embracing USD’s diversity while creating an opportunity to practice empathy and build community
• Changemaker FEST- annual celebration of our designation as a Changemaker Campus
• Chopped- An annual cooking competition between various clubs and orgs on campus to build community and raise awareness on food and health related issues
• Dinner with Strangers- an opportunity to discuss current hop topics and meet new people
• What I be Project- a photo project developed by Steve Rosenfield providing an opportunity for the USD community to come together through vulnerability and courage. Check out this year’s photos here
• Kill the Cup- Sustainable effort to encourage student body to use recyclable mugs and cups at the Aroma’s Coffee Shop
