You can make the world a better place by learning deeply about issues that matter to you and taking action to create positive change in those areas.
There are many ways to create change: volunteering for service, advocating for policy or systemic change, assisting with critical fundraising, proposing creative and innovative solutions, or running ventures that support social and environmental concerns. Whatever their path of action, changemakers thrive on keeping a positive frame of mind, an entrepreneurial spirit and the determination to work for the benefit of all.
As a leading institution, MDC has received the honor and distinction of being designated an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus. Learn what that means and how you can make change possible by working to create an “everyone a changemaker” world.
Being a changemaker is an advantage that you can leverage in your career. Changemakers stand out at work and make a difference in their community.
