My experience in Learning from Detroit: Education and Community Revitalization was unprecedented by any classroom experience I had had before.  Rather than simply reading about topics that would challenge us to grow, we were provided with opportunities to actively engage with these issues in ways that empowered us to be vulnerable, humble, and just.  By the end of the semester, I gained a newfound sense of purpose as well as the tools to more effectively understand and connect with others.
