Ashoka Exchange 2012 Student Planning Committee
ASU is hosting the Ashoka Exchange February 2012, and we are looking for committed student leaders to help ASU plan an unforgettable conference.
The Ashoka Exchange is designed to facilitate connections between diverse individuals involved in building social entrepreneurship courses, programs, and partnerships in higher education. We estimate 400 participants from over 100 universities will attend the Ashoka Exchange.
The goals of the Exchange are to:
-Fuel quality, growth and innovation in social entrepreneurship education
-Push disciplinary boundaries and promote interdisciplinary connections
-Boost applied research agendas
-Enhance educational returns both in and out of the classroom
-Create new career paths and employer connections
-Develop partnerships between campuses and with social entrepreneur practitioners
Student feedback will be important for workshop development, evening networking activities, TEDxAshokaU, among other components of the conference.
