2020 Ashoka Exchange
Launched in 2008, Ashoka U offers the Changemaker Campus Designation to institutions, including Duke, leading in social innovation and change-making in higher education.
The Ashoka Exchange brings together 650+ faculty, staff, administrators, students, and thought leaders for three days of inspiration, learning, and community building for social innovation and change-making education.
The Exchange is Ashoka U’s global gathering for social impact educators. Every year, we bring together 650+ faculty, staff, administrators, students, and thought leaders for three days of inspiration, learning, and community building for social innovation and change-making education. The theme for the 2020 Exchange will be: Building Bridges – Changemaking for the Common Good.
The Exchange is more than just a conference. It’s a home for creative problem solvers, learners, listeners, and visionaries. The values that guide our community are:
- Authenticity. Our actions and motivations remain true to our personal and collective values.
- Belonging. We are a home for changemakers and a support network of visionary thinkers.
- Optimism. Where others see problems, we see the spark of a new idea.
- Inclusion. We seek out & respect diverse voices to uncover the best opportunities.
- Generosity. We are here for each other, eager to listen and share.
- Courage. We’re not afraid of unorthodox ideas because they’re inherent to progress.
- Respect. We recognize the right of every attendee to feel safe, heard, and valued at the Exchange. We are all part of this community together and all voices matter.
