Campuses

Launched in 2008, Ashoka U offers the Changemaker Campus Designation to leading institutions in social innovation and changemaking in higher education. Changemaker Campuses empower students and all university stakeholders to be changemakers, firmly embed changemaking into their culture and operations, and work to address both local and global challenges. They are re-envisioning the role of higher education and the university in society as major drivers of social impact.

Changemaker Campus Leaders


Change Leaders

Change Leaders are faculty, staff, and/or administrators with the institutional mandate, vision and grit to advance social innovation and changemaking across their institution and beyond. They act as role models for how to build thriving ecosystems for social innovation and changemaking across different institutional types, serving a diversity of students around the globe, and driving systems change in higher education.
