The Berkeley Changemaker Program can be thought of as a wider, more inclusive way to reach entrepreneurial thinking. On every metric tracked by UC Berkeley, our Berkeley Changemakers are more diverse than the general undergraduate population.
Words like founder, venture, innovation, and entrepreneurship are not words that a lot of young people feel included in. By using the term "Berkeley Changemaker," we reach students across many disciplines who might not naturally use this vocabulary to describe their entrepreneurial thinking. These students have a strong passion for problem-solving and resonate with the identity of being a Berkeley Changemaker.
