"I was given the opportunity to act as both a panelist and a participant at The David Project's Relationship Building Institute. Not only was I given the opportunity to meet some of the nation's most tremendous campus leaders, but I also had the pleasure of listening to their insights, and understanding their perspective on issues that have been occurring with their (extremely diverse) communities." -Brittany, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Catholic Community
