The University of Northampton’s commitment to creating positive social change will be celebrated with a week of activities designed to inspire its staff and students to ‘Give More, Get More, Be More’.
Changemaker Week, which runs from Monday 10 to Friday 14 October, aims to bring together the core themes and values of the University’s ‘Changemaker Campus’ status.
The University has been internationally recognised for its commitment to social innovation and entrepreneurship by being designated a ‘Changemaker Campus’ by Ashoka U – the global association of the world’s leading universities supporting social entrepreneurs – and was the first in the UK to be awarded this honour.
The week will see a series of activities taking place across both University campuses, each with a Changemaker theme.
See the table below to see what activities are taking place:
