Making Change Happen

The Social Change Wheel

The Social Change Wheel diagram highlights 12 different-but-complementary models of activity for making social change happen.  Although UCSC's various programs do not represent all of these approaches, examples of each can be found at work across the University of Chicago and throughout the city.  UCSC collaborates with our many partners, both on- and off-campus and from the private, non-profit, and government sectors, to ensure that every possible avenue towards a more just Chicago is explored by and available to UChicago students.
