In today’s world, courage is required in the face of tremendous uncertainty. At the SE-CHANGE lab, we embrace uncertainty in order to understand the complex challenges facing communities in our region and around the world.

By connecting diverse perspectives, we believe active solutions can be discovered. Diligently—even obsessively—working across disciplines is central to our work. It is our belief that by seeking different modes of knowing, we can generate the kind of new knowledge critically needed to meet social and economic challenges facing individuals and communities around the world.

Our lab is an inclusive, caring space where empathy helps advance innovation for the greater good. We encourage low barriers to collaboration at every turn and welcome new partners, students, faculty, and researchers to join us in our mission.
