IGN1TE change.

Are you interested in leading social change?

Learn how to create change through everyday acts of leadership.

Change is a dynamic constant in people's lives. Heraclitus wrote, "Nothing endures but change." Change comes at us all the time. It is the intersection of the way things are with the way they will be. Leadership for social change is the opportunity people have to direct change toward a future we desire. (Leadership for a Better World, 2009).

What future do you desire? This non-credit leadership program is an introduction to the Social Change Model of Leadership Development and is intended to educate, empower, and engage students in creating change on campus and within the community.
