Boston College Designated a 'Changemaker Campus'

MARCH 18, 2013

In recognition of initiatives such as the Graduate School of Social Work's Social Innovation and Leadership Program and Lab, Boston College has been named a Changemaker Campus by Ashoka, a global association of leading social entrepreneurs.

The Changemaker designation recognizes colleges and universities that "have embedded social innovation as a core value" and built "supportive environments for changemaking across the entire institution – from admissions through the curriculum, career services, all the way to community and alumni engagement."

Boston College is the first university internationally to launch a social innovation program from within a graduate school of social work rather than a business or technological school. As Ashoka notes, "Boston College not only provides students the opportunity to become changemakers through its Social Innovation and Leadership master’s degree, but also invites traditional service agencies and community organizations to build social innovation capacity by participating in BC’s Social Innovation Lab."
