UpSocial Challenge Brief

An opportunity exists for universities and colleges to complement their core teaching and research functions by using the many resources at their disposal to better address community needs and increase wellbeing. As schools start down this path, however, they encounter internal cultural and structural barriers.

Recognizing this, Re-Code and UpSocial undertook a global scan to search for innovative responses to these challenges. The aim was to surface examples from organizations that had transformed their internal practices, and in so doing, created enabling conditions for increasing social impact.

The scope and desired outcomes of the project are neatly documented in this Challenge Brief
