The School of Social Transformation is a community of discovery where students, faculty and staff develop solutions to society's most pressing social problems.

We focus on transformational knowledge and preparing our students to be informed members of society. They will become interdisciplinary, team-oriented and real-world problem solvers that can thrive anywhere and create change not just locally but globally.
