What We Do

We engage students in experience-centered learning to develop three pillars of ethical and effective social change practice:

Ways of Thinking about complexity

How can systems thinking enable us to become more effective complex problem solvers?

Ways of Being in relation to others

What are the ethical implications of attempting to effect change in other people’s lives and controlling scarce resources in the face of enormous need?

Ways of Doing to achieve impact

How can we identify and collaboratively utilize the full range of strategies, methods, tools, and resources necessary to effect durable social change?
