The challenge of developing a sustainability mindset in undergraduate students poses the opportunity and urgency to generate new teaching-learning mechanisms. Meanwhile, universities have important resources to generate prosperity around them while also fulfilling their mission. They frequently create programs where students address social issues. This chapter describes a program (Drivers of Change) that seeks to combine service learning and social innovation to generate sustainable social projects. During nine semesters, the students concentrate on one of the Sustainable Development Goals in order to solve a social issue in the community. This program relies on five pillars to achieve this goal: theoretical training, experiential learning, research, human centered, and sustainability. As the complexity of the projects increases, the students also develop the three dimensions of the sustainability mindset model: values, competencies, and knowledge (Kassel, Rimanoczy, & Mitchell, 2016).
