Commitment to Action

Improving the Impact of Student Global Service

Commitment by

Center for Global Engagement

In 2009, the Center for Global Engagement committed to creating a global service hub on Change.org to aggregate and connect students involved in global service around the world. This initiative aims to better engage a new generation of students in implementing responsible, effective, and sustainable community development projects. The Center for Global Engagement will use this to launch an open source curriculum initiative in which the member organizations translate their best practices, lessons learned, and project case studies into a standard, replicable format of curricular modules that students can use when undertaking service projects in any context. To pilot this initiative, the Center for Global Engagement will work with five student-led nonprofits in the coordination of more than 1,500 students working on community development projects in 14 countries.
