Call to Action: Students and Professors Get Serious About Impact

Posted: 05/15/2012 4:33 pm

It's time to get serious about impact in higher education. For that to become a reality, we're calling on students and professors to push beyond their comfort zones and experience social innovation in the real world.

ThinkImpact and iOnPoverty, two social enterprises dedicated to providing millennials more opportunities to change the world, have teamed up to provide students and their favorite professors a once in a lifetime opportunity to engage with social innovation in developing economies.

Get involved today at ProfsForChange.com.

The two organizations are giving away 10 days free in Africa (you can go to Kenya, Ghana, Rwanda or South Africa) to a winning student and her or his professor!

The thinking here is simple: Engage students and their profs in the important, if difficult, work of social change. We can't do it alone. We need everyone on board to help build a network that can become the movement that will be the change we wish to see in the world.

Let's think about connecting everyone interested in the global social change movement -- for this to work there needs to be a truly multi-disciplinary approach. Students are invited to submit their favorite profs from all corners of the university. The contest is simple and takes seconds.

Don't miss this opportunity to see social innovation first hand. And the more people who enter, the better. Oh, by the way, everyone who enters gets a free subscription ($15 value!) to iOnPoverty, the awesome new online portal that brings viewers face to face with sector leading social entrepreneurs. Go to ProfsForChange.com.
