The world is changing fast. Technological and social contexts increasingly demand people who are proactive and knowledgeable, who listen as well as act, who are open as well as confident, who can think both deeply and broadly. Cambridge can offer an outstanding academic education. Changemakers goes beyond that, to build the foundations essential for success: ambition without hubris. Pragmatism and real skill. Network, support, experience.
More than a transferable skills programme or path to employability, Changemakers will help all Homerton students truly find their stride. From launching a start-up, being a social innovator, becoming a playwright, or joining one of the 'big 4' consulting firms - Changemakers is now for tomorrow.
Changemakers is an essential intervention into the Cambridge experience: to help students become all they can be.
Academic Director of Homerton Changemakers
The academic education that Cambridge provides is second to none - and we think that crucial non-academic skills now deserve the same attention.
Professor Geoff Ward
Principal of Homerton College
Homerton is really seizing its moment and becoming right at the heart of the University of Cambridge
Professor Stephen Toope
Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge
Students aren't at Cambridge just to get a degree - it is here that they discover themselves, and decide to make a difference in the world.
