Royal Roads University is applying to be an Ashoka Changemaker Campus, and we want YOU to join us. The purpose of the Changemaker Campus designation is to recognize colleges and universities that have embedded social innovation as a core value and showcase the ways in which they have built supportive environments for changemaking across the entire institution – from admissions to curriculum, career services, and community and alumni engagement. Launched in 2008, Ashoka U offers the Changemaker Campus designation to leading institutions in social innovation education. These institutions share the vision for higher education to become the next global driver of social change by transforming the educational experience into a world-changing experience. We know that our students are already changemakers and social innovators. As part of our application to become a changemaker campus with Ashoka U, we are putting together a change team, and would love to get representation from those in the FSAS community on the team. You do not have to be local to Victoria, we welcome online participation. If you consider yourself to be a social innovator and changemaker, we’d like to hear from you. Email Jaigris Hodson (jaigris.hodson@royalroads.ca) or Robert Mittelman (Robert.Mittelman@RoyalRoads.ca) to find out more information or to sign up.
