- Who We Are
Social Innovation Generation: Student Leadership Initiative (SIG:SLI) is part of California Campus Compact’s three-year initiative that is catalyzing and mobilizing colleges and universities to aid in the state’s recovery and renewal. SIG:SLI encourages and supports change-making student-led service and service-learning projects that will not only aid those hardest hit by California’s economic crisis, but also help California emerge from the crisis with a more innovative, green and sustainable economic future.
California Institute of Integral Studies. By identifying community trauma and developing methods to enable community-based
Cohort 4 organizations to work on healing and overcoming emotional and social challenges, the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) Student Leadership Initiative project has the potential to serve as an intervention and prevention tool for economic policy. By demonstrating and responding to community trauma, and through the relationships and collective identity of a community, non-profits will be better positioned to identify and advocate for holistic and integral public policy that allows individuals and organizations to work together. Clinical students will be developing and trained on reflective “community trauma” learning curricula to work with community based organizations. They will collaboratively develop a community workshop for these organizations and, ultimately, the curricula will be used to develop an on-going CIIS course.
California Campus Compact gratefully acknowledges the Corporation for National and Community Service, Learn and Serve America Higher Education for its significant support in making the Social Innovation Generation grant initiative possible.
