Join your college president to learn about the experiences of two communities affected by contaminated water. Explore the physical, psychological and financial impacts on affected residents. Learn about the impact of an aging infrastructure in a voiceless, diverse population. Learn about leadership in crisis, and learn what you can do to make a difference in the life of your community.
