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
