Social Change / Rooted Innovation – New Course Spring 2019

Our very own Professor Dmitri Seals will be launching the Rooted Innovation Lab in the spring of 2019. Exploring the theory and practice of Social Change, this course seeks to create meaningful partnerships with social impact organizations that allow them to leverage the best of our student’s social innovation talents as well as provide students with substantive learning and developmental opportunities. Through collaborating with organizations in solving key problems, students will develop key skills and networks to drive their work as leaders and catalysts for social change after graduation.

Dec 10-14: Civic & Social Innovation Summit

The Civic and Social Innovation Group (CaSIG) is a group of faculty, staff, and students on CSU-LA’s campus stewarding the next generation of change makers. The Civic and Social Innovation Summit (CaSIS) is our signature event featuring the work of our students who have been working very hard for the entire semester to develop ideas that will make people and places better.

In 6 course sessions from December 10 to 14, at least 100 students working in teams will showcase their ideas in pitch style sessions covering a range of issues including gentrification, recidivism, education, mental health, transparency in public finance, environmental injustice, sexism, racism and more.
