Challenge Change Action

Through Challenge Change Action, students spent a semester exploring a social challenge of their choice through a series of workshops facilitated by the Swearer Center. The workshops aimed to help students understand the challenge from multiple perspectives, analyze current approaches to changing it, and make a plan to learn more, innovate, or otherwise act upon it. Swearer Center funding was available for participants who wished to continue exploring the challenge following the end of the program.

"What I loved most about the workshops was the people–I felt like I was a part of a small community or group of friends who got together every week to discuss and work on social issues we cared about. I learned so much from everyone in the program, had a lot of fun during our discussions and exercises, and left the program with much clearer ideas and plans about how I can keep working on my social challenge moving forward." – Eojin Choi '19, Spring 2017 Challenge Change Action Participant
