founding of communities

Communities is the product of Richard Leib, Julie Dumke, Brad Weber, and Oliver Schinkten. The program was founded to help students learn content differently than in the traditional classroom. Communities students learn content through real-life application, pairing with local businesses and partners to help solve community problems.
