2020 Virtual Change Leader Series

Our virtual series, co-created by Ashoka U and the Network Advisory Committee, has been designed to meet Changemaker Campus Change Leaders in the current and post-Covid world. The series includes:

  • Part I: Change Leader Gathering (Free) – May 28, 4:30 – 6:15 pm US Eastern Time

In May through July, we will connect virtually (via synchronous and asynchronous methods) across institutions, reflect on the past months, and discuss how we, as Change Leaders, can support the development of changemaker education at our institutions in our new reality. For Changemaker Campus Change Leaders Only.
