What is a Changemaker?

Ashoka Changemaking Seal
Changemaking is positive societal impact that can be achieved in many ways by one student, faculty, campus, or college to ignite positive social change in our community.

At St. Thomas, the Center for the Common Good facilitates the way we can connect across the university and into the community to catalyze social innovation. We help individuals and groups; faculty, students, staff, and alumni; and campus and community organizations build networks and grow relationships in order to solve today's most pressing problems in our neighborhoods and world.
All for the Common Good.

Changemaking is more than St. Thomas giving back to the community, to which our long and rich history is testament. Changemaking results in our campus and community advancing together. Our whole university will become more empathetic, skillful, and actively engaged. Our partner organizations will become more robust and resilient. And our community members will become more empowered and connected.
