SIL's collaboration with ChangeX
Beginning February 2021, we will enter into a partnership with ChangeX to pilot a new program pathway for Swarthmore College community to participate in social innovation engagement that focuses on College’s campus community relationship building. More specifically, our goal is to create a pathway and an opportunity for Swarthmore College community members to explore social innovation engagement by delivering short-term ChangeX social innovation projects. Projects will focus on community building such as infrastructural projects (virtual or physical), empathy-building action, education-orientated projects, or other related activities. The Social Innovation Lab will offer participants an accompanying engaged scholarship curriculum, including directed readings, small group discussion, and mentoring support from ChangeX and Swarthmore College partners, including the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility, and Center for Innovation and Leadership.
