Brian Chang brings a warm and positive energy to all the projects he is a part of. I had the privilege to collaborate with Brian on many initiatives, and he has always been a fantastic partner to work with. If you haven’t attended Brian’s Public Speaking Workshop, you are really missing out.

Brian Chang is one of the hardest working, creative and detailed-oriented people that I’ve ever met. When he does a job he goes above and beyond the duties of his role—he thinks of everything. He selflessly puts in all of the time needed to get the job done. I can’t say enough about Brian with his knowledge, integrity, dedication and kindness.

Brian is a talented musician and conductor, but even more importantly, he is a community leader. Having established and led multiple choirs, he has created inclusive spaces for singers of all levels to develop their skills and express themselves through music.

“Brian Chang is an amazing individual. His determination to make the world around him a better place, his commitment to the community around him, and his optimistic view on life separates Brian from everyone else I’ve worked with. I was fortunate to call Brian my supervisor; I’m blessed to be able to call him my friend.

Brian Chang incorporates the perfect blend of strategic planning and radical empathy into his community organizing, recognizing that the most essential piece of any social change is the people involved. He has the skills to get it done, and values the opportunity to facilitate them in others too, meeting people where they are, and consistently helps bring out the best in those around him. I'm proud to have worked under and alongside him, and can't wait to do so again in the future.

Brian Chang is the perfect combination of organizing brilliance, administrative prowess, and social intelligence. I have seen Brian inspire students who went out of their way to show how much they loved him as a TA. I have seen him manage advocacy campaigns seamlessly despite long hours and countless moving parts. When campaigning, Brian follows up enthusiastically and regularly with everyone. His warmth and determination are as rare as they are supportive.
