Triton Changemakers

Making positive change is part of our DNA at UC San Diego. Join us in our quest to make a real difference — whether it's making change around the globe or in our local community, you too, can be a changemaker.

Changemaker Institute

The Changemaker Institute serves as the hub for all UC San Diego Changemaker Campus programs and initiatives, which involves a cross-disciplinary, campus wide effort that includes all seven colleges, five academic divisions, five graduate and professional schools and Extension. The effort is far reaching, including off campus community organizations and other colleges and universities.
