Jeremy Gudauskas is an Assistant Vice President at North Central College. He co-directs the College's Center for Social Impact, a collaborative campus effort focused on engaging students in academic and co-curricular opportunities in social entrepreneurship, civic engagement, service, community-based learning, and activism. In the classroom, Gudauskas teaches courses in design thinking, social innovation, social entrepreneurship, and leadership in the interdisciplinary Leadership, Ethics and Values program. He also oversees the College's Office of Career Development, Office of Student Involvement, and Office of Faith and Action. 

Over his 15 years at North Central, Gudauskas has been involved in launching a variety of new student-focused initiatives including a student-run music venue (The Union), a social venture pitch competition (Changemaker Challenge), a community-wide day of service (Intersection), pre-orientation immersion experiences (Cardinal Camps), a men’s leadership expedition (Men vs. Wild), an outdoor adventure program (TRAIL Outfitters) and multiple conferences (including TEDxNorthCentralCollege). He helped spearhead the process for North Central College to achieve the "Changemaker Campus" designation from AshokaU and is active in speaking and consulting throughout the network.
