The ILVI Mission

The Impact Linda Vista Initiative (ILVI), created by the University of San Diego’s Changemaker Hub, is designed to highlight the innovations, led by community organizations and schools in Linda Vista, that are creating positive, long-lasting, socio-economic and cultural transformations in the neighborhood.

The University of San Diego’s (USD) convenes both local organizations and faculty members with the purpose of mindfully engaging USD students through various courses to learn changemaking from the community, help highlight innovative programs, and uncover for one another why such programs exist and how they are working towards longlasting change.
