“A changemaker is someone who takes creative action to solve a social problem.”
The Changemaker Scholars Program helps students acquire the knowledge, skills, resources, and mindset to become creative
problem-solvers, engaged citizens, and active agents for positive change in their
communities. The 25-credit program provides opportunities for students with a variety
of interests and majors to gain a deeper understanding of social problems, collaborate
with campus and community partners to find creative solutions to these problems, and
