A Global Community of Educators and Changemakers

The Ashoka U Exchange took place annually from 2011 – 2021. Starting out as a small(ish) gathering of just about 150 faculty, staff, and students who were devoted to social innovation and changemaking to higher education, it over the years grew to a large, global community of thousands of thought leaders, visionaries, innovators, and friends.

Each of the 11 Exchanges we hosted (9 in person and 2 virtually) were unique and special in their own way. Together, we’ve criss-crossed the US, seen changemaking in action at each of our 11 campus hosts, and connected as a global community despite unprecedented change.  On behalf of the Ashoka U team, we’ve appreciated every moment of getting to know and learn from each and every one of our community members. It’s been a honor to support and amplify your work.
