Social Innovation Initiative

Difference Makers in Action

The Social Innovation Initiative supports students, faculty, staff and community members to effectively solve problems at whatever scale is needed in their community, city, field, industry or country. We equip people with a skill set and a purpose through speakers, residencies, mentors, training programs and community partnerships, and by serving as a regional convener of like-minded agents of positive social change. The Social Innovation Initiative, which is located in the 707 Hub, has been recognized for its work by Ashoka U and designated one of 37 Changemaker Campuses worldwide.
