The Specifics

The Ashoka U Exchange brings together a network of leaders for social innovation in higher education. These leaders are committed to fostering the next generation of entrepreneurs and changemakers who will be well equipped to leverage their talents and skills to help solve the most pressing challenges of our time.

After 2 days of networking and best practice sharing at Arizona State University, Ashoka U challenges the Exchange community to submit their stories of impact.

What are stories of impact? We want to know: Have you shared resources with colleagues? Proposed a new class? Sparked a partnership? Launched a social venture? Taken some other action because of the influence of a speaker, workshop leader, or fellow participant?

Stories of impact will be considered by:
(a) sharing what initial steps you have already taken in 60 days and
(b) sharing what your plan is to take impact even further.

Submit a written description with an image or YouTube video. Individual or group submissions are welcome.

Once your story is submitted, rally your colleagues, friends, family, and neighbors to get behind you and join the GOOD community in deciding which story brought the most positive change to higher-education – and to the world. Connect on twitter at @GOODmkr and follow this challenge at #GOODashoka.

Email us at with any questions.

On the Good Maker home page, it says “Anyone can submit their ideas.” On this page, it says “ONLY 2012 Exchange participants are allowed to submit their stories of impact.” May I ask, what is the reason behind this contradiction?
