At the beginning of the spring semester, each of the 30 students in the community-based learning course, Building Community, was asked to reflect on a single question: What, exactly, does it mean to build a community? “It’s a concept that gets thrown around a lot these days,” says Philip Hendrix ’14. “I took the course because I wanted to get a little more concrete about what it means to strengthen a community.”
