Through ADE students engage collaboratively with communities and partners to reduce burden, expand education, improve health, ensure rights, and generate income. Teams engage, propose, prototype, test, and refine using the normative principles, methods, and tools of their track's change-making practice in ethical ways, be it community organizing, public policy advocacy, social venturing, etc.
