CC an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus
A contingent of CC faculty, staff and students represented the college at the 2015 Ashoka U Exchange in Washington, D.C. The event convened more than 150 college and university members of Ashoka U’s global network to connect on the topic of advancing social innovation on their campuses. Social innovation was discussed through a variety of perspectives: from admission and the curriculum, to career services and alumni engagement and beyond.
Two CC students, Julian Kraus-Polk ’15 and Alex Suber ’15, presented on informing and exciting first-year students about social innovation during their first semester. The Summer Global Sustainability Internship Program was featured at the conference in presentations by Professors Eric Popkin and Wade Roberts.
Last summer, CC was one of 30 institutions selected to be the founding cohort of Changemaker Campuses, which includes institutions that are setting the bar in support of Ashoka’s mission of advancing social entrepreneurship and innovation worldwide. CC Dean of Students Mike Edmonds, Popkin, Roberts, and Professor Manya Whitaker received the designation on behalf of the college.
