Choose a Project
Imagine the kind of world you want to live in, the kind of world you want your children to inherit, the kind of world that makes you proud to be a human being. Go for greatness. Change the conversation. Choose a project that when shared with others they say “Can you do that?” Or, even better “You cannot do that.” Propose a project that is so monumental that it can only be accomplished through collective effort. You cannot do it alone. You students cannot do it alone. Neither of you have enough expertise, energy, enthusiasm, or time. The project cannot be accomplished in a semester, an academic year, or even before they graduate. It will not fit neatly into a syllabus. And, victory will be measured in inches. Who cares? You and your students are building a new world order.
