Graduates for Social Innovation & Changemaker Club

Campus-Wide Engagement

The Ballard Center is part of a vibrant university setting. We welcome the opportunity to develop creative collaborations across campus to create the best results for your organization.

For instance, when a partner needed some legal research done, we approached the J. Reuben Clark Law School, with whom we had not previously collaborated. We connected with a professor who worked with us to adapt his current curriculum to include what we do here at the Ballard Center. He also helped to recruit four law students to complete the research needed.

“We have been very fortunate to get to know the BYU Ballard Center for Economic Self-Reliance. BYU students have been very useful to Fundación Paraguaya because they have developed educational programs, carried out surveys, and adjusted our microfinance methodologies. They have helped us take the lessons that we have learned from our programs to other countries.”
— Martin Burt, Fundación Paraguaya
