Ashoka U's Virtual Accelerator for Changemaking Education

The Commons is a virtual accelerator for individuals working to develop social innovation education on their campus. Participants in the Commons collaborate with peers from across the field of higher education who are working toward similar goals. Experienced Coaches will guide and support participants in developing and advancing specific objectives in each of our six Cohorts:

  • Making the Case for Changemaking Education
  • Designing a Social Innovation Course
  • Building a Social Innovation Course Sequence
  • Launching Co-Curricular Venture Programs
  • Mapping Student Learning Journeys
  • Building Allies and Raising Awareness

Participants leave the Commons with concrete plans to meet their goals of advancing social innovation and changemaking education across their institution.

Applications are now closed for the Spring 2017 session of the Commons and will reopen in June for our September – December 2017 session.
