Climate Alliance | EIL x Changemaker Hub

The EIL and Changemaker Hub have formed a partnership program, the Climate Alliance, which consists of a group of 15 fellows. The fellowship is a 6-week commitment from February-March with weekly meetings of about 90 minutes each. Fellows will earn one upper division credit in Changemaking.*  This is a great opportunity both to contribute to USD's sustainability & climate plans and boost your resume!


*If you are a First-year, sophomore or Junior- Students can earn one unit of CHNG 499 (Independent Study). This unit will count as an upper-division elective course for your graduation requirements and will also count as one unit towards the Changemaking Minor (as one of three units for the elective requirement).  This unit will be added to your course schedule. 

Climate Alliance applications for Fall 2022 coming soon...

Work with ~15 fellow students to  identify an issue, come up with a solution, and implement your idea to create a long-lasting impact on campus.

Build your resume, gain confidence, and make USD a greener place
