Presentation submissions for the 2020 Exchange  are closed.           Application notifications will be sent on November 12th. 

The Exchange is a conference by the community, for the community. The majority of the Exchange content featured on the agenda comes directly from participants and provides concrete learning and best practices that can be applied to your day to day work on the campus.

Selection Process:

The Ashoka U Exchange team, along with the Agenda Council, will review all sessions and determine which sessions will be placed on the 2020 Exchange agenda. The Council leads with an equity and inclusion lens to ensure the content represents the diverse needs and interests of the growing social innovation education community. You can read more about the goals of the Agenda Council and its members, here.

  • Community engagement
