Boston College Changemaker Campus

Boston College is rooted in the Jesuit ideal of the “… pursuit of a just society,” and has as a primary mission to foster “the rigorous intellectual development…of its undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in order to prepare them for citizenship, service and leadership in global society.” Being a Changemaker Campus aligns with these ideals and the goals of the university. Social innovation activities are happening across the Boston College campus including a range of research, teaching, and student life events. The campus has rich resources to support social innovation activities and many opportunities to engage students in this dialogue. These activities are structured across five key areas: Centers, Course, Events and Student Life, Research, and Resources.
