They showcase the critical work of higher education innovators in helping to create a world where everyone is a changemaker.
Ashoka U will review all commitments to ensure they meet the following criteria:
> Contributes to equipping or activating more changemakers.
> Is specific, measurable, and focuses on a new level of impact (this can include integrating, expanding, or deepening an existing initiative).
> Commitment leads take an intentional approach to minimize inadvertent harm resulting from their commitment. Read Ashoka U’s Primer on Responsible Changemaker Education for more.
> Commitment leads work in, or have a strong connection to, higher education.
Virtual design sessions were held to help institutions design their commitment.
Deadline for commitment submission.
Unfortunately we can’t accept any additional commitments for 2019. We will open the call for 2020 commitments next spring. Sign-up here to stay in the loop!
In addition to anyone associated with a higher education institution, (student, faculty, staff, or administrator), we will also accept commitments from organizations, companies, or policy-makers working with higher education. Commitments can be at an individual-level, team-level, or institution-level.
The #MillionsofChangemakers call to action is designed to be a kick-off point and a gathering ground.
After successfully making a commitment, you (and others on your team), will be invited to participate in different aspects of Ashoka U’s learning community. Through this community we will act as match-makers, connecting those who are working on similar commitments, or have resources that can help you achieve your goals.
However, the supports offered are not a comprehensive suite of tools, funding, and resources. Rather this platform is our call for entrepreneurial individuals, institutions, and co-creators of all kinds who can leverage this platform and network to help activate millions of changemakers. If that’s you – join us!
