Changemaker Central was created as a way to facilitate participation by making direct service, service learning, entrepreneurship, and high-impact careers more accessible and inviting to students.
Signature programs include:
Devils in Disguise – Devils in Disguise is the largest student-run day of service at ASU. Occurring each year in March, student organizations participate in this project by hosting volunteering sites for their fellow Sun Devils. Food, transportation, t-shirts—and a great time—are provided. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Innovation Challenge – Innovation Challenge seeks undergraduate and graduate students from across the university who are dedicated to making a difference in our local and global communities through innovation. Students can win up to $10,000 to make their innovative project, prototype, venture or community partnership ideas happen.
10,000 Solutions – The 10,000 Solutions Project leverages the power of collaborative imagination and innovation to create a solutions bank. As an experimental problem-solving platform, the project showcases and collects ideas at scale with local and global impact. The 10,000 Solutions Project aims to see what can be accomplished when passionate people join a collaborative community that builds upon each other’s innovative ideas.
Ignite @ ASU – Ignite @ ASU is a public event for great thinkers and doers to gather, share ideas, connect with others and create change. It features rapid-fire, five-minute presentations that brings ASU students, faculty, staff and community members together to build more connected, vibrant communities.
