Change Makers Living Learning Community


What Makes Your Community?

Change Makers is for students who want to drive positive change in their community (e.g. reducing poverty, increasing community health, and supporting youth). You will build skills associated with social resiliency while working towards creating awareness and organizing support for various community initiatives. Students in this community will further McMaster’s commitment to support the United Way of Halton & Hamilton.

Why Join the Change Makers Living Learning Community?

Living in the Change Makers Living Learning Community, you will have the opportunity to:
  • Learn about various community organizations and be connected to opportunities for involvement
  • Engage in meaningful ways in the McMaster and Hamilton Community
Each Living Learning Community offers a variety of activities and programs that make up key parts of the residence experience. We strongly encourage residents to take advantage of the many of the unique activities and events offered. Students can participate in as many or as few LLC events as they would like but the more events you participate in the more opportunities you will have to connect with fellow students and other members of the McMaster community.

Programs & Opportunities

Students in the Change Makers community will meet McMaster faculty members and community experts from a variety of disciplines and discuss skill-building practices essential for effective community engagement.
Events for this community include faculty and community expert visits, trending topic panels, skills-based workshops, and service learning opportunities. Change Makers students will have a number of opportunities to participate in the academic and social aspects of the university and the surrounding community.
The Change Makers LLC will help residents get connected to McMaster by introducing them to experiences within the campus and Hamilton community. Students will be encouraged to branch out into the community with tours, social events, and volunteer experiences at the university and in the surrounding area.
