University of San Diego
Changemaker Campus since Fall 2011 The University of San Diego grows out of a long tradition and commitment to social change, with a consistent vision of preparing leaders dedicated to ethical conduct and compassionate service. USD's public purpose and collaborative approach has always been articulated concretely through service, in which every person on campus is challenged to reach out with talent and time to work in partnership with the community. As a Changemaker Campus, USD seeks to develop an ecosystem to produce knowledge for the good of society and to educate the next generation of competent change agents. To create that ecosystem, USD created innovative, multidisciplinary, socially minded curriculum and programs that develops students as "change listeners", focusing on their reflection and integration in order to achieve a high degree of cultural competence and a life-long commitment to be change agents.
