The “Write to Change the World” program, sponsored by the UC Humanities Network, is designed to build our faculty’s capacity to translate their research for the public and to engage in debate at a national level based on their areas of expertise. Working in partnership with the OpEd Project, three one-day workshops led by OpEd Project facilitators were hosted at three regional hubs: UC Davis, UC Merced, and UCLA, with 22 fellows in each workshop, from nine participating campuses (UCSF, UCSB, UCI, UCR,UCSD, UCSC, UCD, UCM, UCLA), for a total of 60+ fellows. Invitational priorities for applicants included:

1) sustainability and the environment
2) social justice and inequality
3) big data and digital humanities
4) public health and medical humanities
5) arts and public life.

This program provides extraordinary resources, access and support, including cutting edge game-based, research-driven programming, and access to a prestigious network of fellows at peer institutions nationwide.
