This fall, Community Service at the Center for Student Involvement is hosting Doing Good Better, a 7-week seminar on social innovation. This free, non-credit seminar will teach undergraduate and graduate students how to take action to solve local and global challenges. Possible topics include education, environment and climate change, global health, human rights, and poverty alleviation.
Doing Good Better will support students in carrying out their social innovation projects from idea through implementation. Participants will also learn how to construct effective applications for statewide and international social innovation competitions, including Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U), The Social Innovation Fund at UCSD, Zahn Prize Competition, Big Ideas, and The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF). These competitions provide students with opportunities to forge partnerships and obtain funding to turn their ideas into action.
Doing Good Better will be facilitated by Ryan Crawford, Community Service Program Coordinator and Kristen Darnell, Community Service Graduate Assistant.
